The Story of the Weeping Camel
Directed by Byambasuren Davaa & Luigi Falorni
2003 / 93 mins
Programmed by Film Forum
A nomadic family in Mongolia’s Gobi Desert is confronted by a mother camel whose difficult delivery of a white colt leads to her rejection of the baby. As repeated efforts by the extended family to get the mother to nurse her baby fail, the colt plaintively cries for its mother and the family worries that he will not survive. The two young sons travel to a nearby town to find a musician who can perform a ceremony that will resolve the camel crisis. Their journey leads to their delightful first encounter with television. This is a wonderful and wonderfully poignant film for children, camel lovers, and anyone who likes a happy ending.
