Summer Pasture
Dir. Lynn True, Nelson Walker, and Tsering Perlo, 2010, 85 min.
Local New York City filmmakers True and Walker achieved unprecedented access to a community of Tibetan nomads, working closely with their subjects and co-director Tsering Perlo to create the remarkable cinematic meditation Summer Pasture. It is increasingly difficult for many Tibetan nomads to maintain their way of life. Rigid government policies, rangeland degradation, and the allure of modern convenience and culture have prompted many once nomadic families to settle permanently in towns and cities. Summer Pasture chronicles one young family during a season of change and uncertainty as they face these decisions. Husband Locho, wife Yama, and their infant daughter, Jiatomah, spend the summer in eastern Tibet's Zachukha grasslands. It's an area known as Wu-Zui or "5-Most," the highest, coldest, poorest, largest, and most remote county in Sichuan Province, China. In this gentle film, which involved the subjects in their own cinematic portrait, traditional life confronts rapid modernization onscreen.

Preceded by:
Dreams of the Divine: A Trilogy
Dir. Olivia Wyatt, 2011, 27 min. - World Premiere
This powerful short work documents a religious ceremony of the Celestial Church of Christ on Rockaway Beach; a hipster drum performance by the all-girl drum corps Chica Vas in Manhattan; and a Haitian vodou ritual honoring the Ghede family of spirits in Brooklyn. Wyatt's fluid, mobile camerawork and dexterous editing offers an insider's view of three New York City communities pulsing with life and conviction.
