About the film:
Living 5,000 metres above sea level with her 300 goats, Tsering is one of the last shepherdesses in the far northern mountains of Ladakh, India. As she leads her flock of 300 sheep and Pashmina goats to graze on the 5500m high Himalayan Plateaus in a dry and desolate landscape, Tsering is under the continuous threat of wolves and snow leopards. Documented by her brother and Director Stanzin Dorjay (Gypa) over four seasons, the film depicts both her world of icy loneliness and that unbreakable bond between humans and animals. The Shepherdess of the Glaciers also reveals the ancestral wisdom of those Ladakhi shepherds whose environment and livelihoods are under severe threat.
