Yama - INDEPENDENT LENS "Summer Pasture"
Air Date: 
Tuesday, May 15th - 10:00pm
Episode Title: 
Summer Pasture

“Summer Pasture” is the story of a young nomadic couple living with their infant daughter in the high grasslands of eastern Tibet. The film offers a rare window into a highly insular community seldom seen by outsiders. In the collective imagination of Tibet, nomads have traditionally occupied a dual role — romanticized as embodying the purest form of Tibetan identity and mocked as being backwards, uncivilized and inferior.
