Cordyceps sinensis (in Tibetan, Yartsa-gunbu) has been called “Tibet’s golden worm” and “The Viagra of the Himalayas.” When it was discovered 30 years ago as a natural remedy, it became a boon to Tibetan nomads. Today, some nomadic Tibetan communities bring in as much as 80% of their income collecting it. Yartsa Rinpoche follows Darlo, an elder in the Amdo region, who with his family forms a group of 30 that treks 800 kilometers to collect the “worm,” while exploring its larger implications.


The Museum of Modern Art presents as a special focus, Lens on Tibet, a 13-film exibition of recent tibetan documentary and narative films.On this occasion, come to meet Dorje Tsering Chenaktsang, the tibetain poet and director for a special Q&A after the screening.
