Story of the Weeping Camel
Ингэн нулимс

In this Oscar nominated documentary, a family of nomadic shepherds save the life of a rare white camel after it is rejected by its mother. Deftly following Mongolian nomadic culture, the film displays how close the community lives to a naturalistic order that promotes balance and harmony. Not only are the events of the film touching, it is a rare on screen depiction of genuine relationship of a community’s close ties to the natural world.
