ABOUT SHEPHERDESS OF THE GLACIERS Halfway around the world – the filmmakers’ ability to make an intimate and isolated existence ‘universal’ is what makes this film at once moving and engaging. This expansive film absorbs the viewer into the conjoined, meditative world of a harsh environment – which includes the passing seasons, a barren mountainous landscape and the intimate relationship between humans and animals in their care. Capturing a moment in time – quietly observing a spirited individual eking out a basic existence with all of life’s necessities – the filmmaker uncovers a life that is organic – filled with struggles – but ultimately a life abundant with awe and joy.”— Elizabeth Yake, member of the 2016 Banff Mountain Film Festival jury.
