Locho, Yama, and Pale Chubby Baby … where are they now? Lynn True, co-director of Summer Pasture, provided us with these fantastic video updates from the Tibetan plateau in which we discover what has happened to the nomad family in the years between the film’s completion and its broadcast last week on Independent Lens.
Catching Up with the Summer Pasture Family
In this update with the subjects of the Independent Lens documentary Summer Pasture, we catch up with Locho and Yama and their two daughters to see how their lives have changed since they were first filmed. Now they have certain modern amenities, like a cell phone and a television, on which they view the documentary about themselves. Afterwards, they share their thoughts about the film.
Education is a Priority for Summer Pasture Family
In this update with the subjects of the Independent Lens documentary Summer Pasture, we see Locho and Yama’s daughter Tsering Tsomo — now 5 years old — and her 3 year old sister, Drolkar Lhamo. Both parents agree that sending their girls to school is a high priority for the family, so that they will have greater opportunities and an appreciation for their Tibetan heritage.
