Independent Lens | Summer Pasture | Clip 1 | PBS

Duration: 02:50
Program: Independent Lens #1322
Broadcast Date: May. 8, 2012

Premiering May 10, 2012. Check local listings: www.pbs.org In this excerpt from the Independent Lens documentary, Summer Pasture, Tibetan herder, Locho, describes how he met his wife, Yama. While womanizing and carousing may not be entirely behind him, these two have started a family together and share the hardships and pleasures of nomadic life as two connected by karma. 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.
