Product description

Davaa, a young filmmaker, returns to her native country and to the region where she grew up to show us life among the nomadic people. Through the touching story of the young girl Nansaa and her little dog Zochor, she depicts the freedom of life on the steppes, as well as the spirituality of the people and the significance of the Buddhist faith. Delicate and poignant, Davaa's story also highlights the increasing tensions as these rich traditions come into conflict with the demands of modern urban life. Following the international success of The Story of the Weeping Camel, director Byambasuren Davaa takes us on a journey into another world, and through poetic writing and exquisite photography she reveals the magic of a culture very different from our own.
