KASHMIR, India – October 27, 2015 – “Of Woman and Earth,” an exciting, new documentary, was recently announced by filmmakers Aje Unni & Irie Langlois. Set against the wild majesty of the Himalayas in the Indian province of Ladakh, “Of Woman and Earth” tells of the trials, tribulation and triumph of three elderly nomadic women whose life stories have unfolded in the Tibetan Plateau. The Tibetan Plateau is the most elevated, vast and isolated land on our planet, with winter temperatures plummeting far below -30 degrees Celsius. The region is renowned for its immense splendor and breathtaking landscapes. With themes that explore spirituality and women’s roles within the nomadic community, the film progresses in the harsh landscape and with rapidly changing climatic conditions and cultural changes spurred by modernization.
Through the eyes of a woman, and with the knowledge and connection to Mother Earth that only a woman can foster, the film documents the positive and negative changes evident in the natural and cultural landscapes of the last nomads of the Himalayas. With the earth being absolutely integral to the survival of these people, and the connection they have with the land, they must quickly adapt to the ever-changing patterns of climate and culture. The film will be a moving and picturesque visual journey. Captured through the seasons over the course of one year, in a way that is poetic and organic. In a way that is a true documentation, an anthropological portrait of the plateau and its people in this day and age.
“Of Woman and Earth” will take viewers to the heart of the Tibetan Plateau, documenting a critical time in the history of the Himalayas. However, before this impactful film can be made, these filmmakers need help. That’s why they launched this Kickstarter campaign. The goal of this project is to raise $10,000 AUD by November 21, 2015. The funds raised will go towards production costs, such as crew and locations, as well as post-production costs, and marketing.
To help bring this powerful documentary to life, please visit the Kickstarter campaign or click here. Perks will be delivered between December 2015 and December 2017.
Please keep in mind this is an “all-or-nothing” deal, which means if the campaign does not reach the funding goal then the project cannot move forward. So know that any amount given can make a difference, and this is an incredible opportunity to be a part of a special campaign! Help “Of Woman and Earth” reach the goal by sharing this on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networks. The more people know about this, the more support the campaign will receive.
