What movie was that...?

The Story of the Weeping Camel

directed by Byambasuren Davaa and Luigi Falorni

What starts off as a visually magnificent doc about rural Asiatic life ends up turning into a viscerally enigmatic experience that I don’t think I will ever be able to truly grasp. Outwardly about the vast gaps between societies and the struggles facing future generations’ attempts to preserve their own cultural identity, this stunning doc ultimately transforms into a meditation on the mysteries of existence and mankind’s primitive (possibly forgotten) link to the natural world. I won’t get into the specifics, but if you want to have your mind blown, renting this one is definitely a good start.
