The Harvard Museums of Science & Culture present a screening of

Daughters of Anatolia
Daughters of Anatolia follows a Turkish family of nomadic goat herders as they travel ancient seasonal migration routes with their 350 animals, alternating between winters on the Mediterranean and summers in the Taurus Mountains. Producer/director Halé Sofia Schatz documents a lifestyle in transition—one that has roots in traditions dating to the twelfth century, but that now faces challenges from an increasingly urbanized world.
