Summer Pasture is a feature-length documentary that chronicles one summer with a young nomad family living in the high grasslands of eastern Tibet. Locho, his wife Yama, and their infant daughter survive in the mountains by herding yak, much as their ancestors have for generations. In recent years, however, nomadic life has become increasingly difficult and now many nomads are settling in town. Soon, Locho and Yama will face the same predicament, when they must choose whether to raise their daughter in the pasture or send her school -- a decision that will have deep implications for their future as nomads.

This is a Films & Videos program from SFPL. From feature films to youth-made videos, we’ve got something great to watch.
