The Shepherdess of the Glaciers-- A documentary

The Shepherdess of the Glaciers is a documentary by by Stanzin Dorjai-Gya, Christiane Mordelet. It transports the viewer 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 she 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 Sheperdess of the Glaciers engages viewers with the magnificence of the Himalayan landscape and the vitality of the human spirit.
