Independent Lens | Summer Pasture | Update | How Has Life Changed For Nomad Family | PBS

Duration: 09:12
Program: Independent Lens #1322

Premiering May 10, 2012. Check local listings: www.pbs.org In this update with the subjects of the Independent Lens documentary, Summer Pasture, we catch up with Locho and Yama and their two daughters to see how their lives have changed since they were first filmed. Now they have certain modern amenities, like a cell phone and a television, on which they view the documentary about themselves. Afterwards, they share their thoughts about the film. 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.
