Drokpa

Program: SDFF 2017,  FM  Spotlight on Filmmakers

With rare access to nomadic family living, the film reveals the unprecedented environmental and sociopolitical forces these people are facing. Living on the vast yet rapidly degrading grasslands on the high plateau of eastern Tibet, this story is a tribute to the resilience of the human spirit. Richly observed daily lives and family relationships become both deeply personal and illustrative of the evolutionary issues of gender and freedom as the Nomads, the Drokpa, are forced to adapt to a changing climate.
