The Mosuo Sisters

En curso

With director Marlo Poras in person

With local food provided by William Hallet from 1:00 to 5:00 p.m., and live music performances by Vlada Tomova’s Bulgarian Voices Trio (Bulgarian and Russian folk harmonies) at 1:00–1:45 p.m. and 4:00–4:45 p.m. in the Museum’s courtyard

China. Dir. Marlo Poras. 2012, 80 mins. Juma and Latso are thrust into the worldwide economic downturn when they lose their jobs in Beijing. Left with few options, they leave for home, a remote village in the foothills of the Himalayas. Determined to keep their mother and siblings out of poverty, Latso sacrifices her dream of an education and stays home to farm, while Juma leaves again to try her luck in Lijiang and Chengdu. Ultimately, though, it’s the sisters’ relationship with one another that hangs in the balance, in this riveting documentary, as they struggle to navigate the vast cultural and economic divides of contemporary China.
