The Shepherdess of the Glaciers,  a film that tells the story of a nomadic shepherdess in the Himalayan region of Ladakh, will be showing at the Ross theatre in Lincoln Sept. 28th -Oct. 4th. The director, Stanzin Dorjai, will be there for the opening on September 28, at 7:30.

OWS Guild was asked to spread the word in the fiber loving community in Omaha.  We’ve heard that it is a spectacular film and that gives you a real picture of where those cashmere sweaters we all love begin. For more info: https://theross.org/movie/1048/
