About this product
- DescriptionDavaa, a young filmmaker, returns to her native country and to the region where she grew up to show us life among the madic 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 ather world, and through poetic writing and exquisite photography she reveals the magic of a culture very different from our own.
- Author BiographyDavaa was born in Mongolia in 1971 and grew up there. She now lives in Germany and is a filmmaker, most recently of THE STORY OF THE WEEPING CAMEL. She made the film and wrote the book with the director, Lisa Reisch.
