THE MOSUO SISTERS
US PREMIERE When they lose their jobs in Beijing, Juma and Latso, sisters from one of the world’s last matriarchal societies, are thrust into the worldwide economic downturn. Left with few options, they return home to their remote village in the Himalayas. But home is no longer what it was, as growing exposure to the modern world has irrevocably altered the traditions of the Mosuo. Determined to keep their family out of poverty, one sister sacrifices her dream of an education and stays home to farm, while the other leaves to try her luck again in the city.
