Synopsis

"Daughters of Anatolia" follows a family of nomadic goat herders as they and their 350 animals travel ancient seasonal migration routes, 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 12th century but now faces challenges from an increasingly urbanized world.
