A Documentary on the Brokpas: Semi Nomadic Yak Herders Of Arunachal Pradesh

via Vimeo: Shot over a period of one year from support from the UNESCO-MacArthur Foundation, the above incredible film portrays the story of the Brokras, who are semi-nomadic yak herders living in the remote mountains of western Arunachal Pradesh. They are perhaps are one of the most fascinating tribes of the region who spend few months every year with their Yaks in some of the most breathtaking parts of the Himalayas. This must-watch documentary for the northeast and culture enthusiast shows how the Brokpa culture is struggling to survive with the onset of modernity, whereas while the elders practice their ancient traditions and means of livelihood, the younger generation have other plans.
