Join the Southeast Fiber Arts Alliance for the Atlanta premiere of the documentary The Shepherdess of the Glaciers, a beautifully tough story from the end of the world.
The 75-minute-long film transports viewers to the far northern mountains of Ladakh, India, where Tsering, one of the last shepherdesses in this dry and desolate landscape leads her flock of 300 sheep and goats to graze on the Himalayan Plateaus. It is through her brother’s skillful documentation over four seasons that we witness Tsering’s world of loneliness and the unbreakable bond between her and her animals, who all must fight against temperatures plummeting to -40F and the persistent threat of snow leopards. Winner of more than 20 internationally acclaimed film festivals, The Shepherdess of the Glaciers engages viewers with the magnificence of the Himalayan landscape and the vitality of the human spirit.

The film's director, Stanzin Dorjai-Gya, (who is also the brother of the star) and the editor of Wild Fibers Magazine will be available for a Q&A session after the screening
