The Story of the Weeping Camel
The Story of the Weeping Camel is a documentary-style film about a nomadic family in Mongolia. One of their camels has a very difficult delivery of her baby camel, which is a rare white camel. But the mother rejects the baby, which would die if not fed by hand. The two young boys go on a long journey alone to the nearest town, to find a musician to help the mother camel accept her baby.
The desert is harsh but beautiful, the family life is simple, and the family has a not surprising confrontation with modernity.
It was an enjoyable film. Our whole family watched it together.
