Gara and her 13-year-old daughter Nada live off herding and cheesemaking in their mountain cabin in rural Montenegro. Their routine is interrupted by a newly set up military proving ground—threatening the environment, people, and tradition. Gara stands up to defend the land of her ancestors by challenging the ruling government and the patriarchal tradition, hoping for the unity of locals, anthropologists and activists, as the case reaches both the EU Parliament and UNESCO.
The Last Nomads is a participant of the 2021 (Egg)celerator Lab.
