Stone Pastures

2008, 68 minutes

A feature documentary following a nomadic family living on the Himalayan plateau of Chantang, Ladakh, through the seasons in the context of their livelihood. At the mercy of the elements, the family aspires towards a more comfortable, settled life. Indeed, we find the nomads in a state of transition between ancient namadic ways and modern town life as we're provided with a fascinating glimpse of a way of life that's slowly disappearing.
