Join us for a screening of Shepardess of the Glaciers (74 minutes). This 2016 documentary film transports us 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.

April 9th: KONELĪNE: Our Land Beautiful
