Synopsis >

Trailer for the documentary The Mosuo Sisters. Juma and Latso are two sisters who come from one of the world's last remaining matriarchal societies. When they lose their jobs in Beijing, they are thrust into the worldwide economic downturn. Left with few options, they return 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 Mosuo traditions. 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.
