Veins of the World
April 12 - 19, 2021
Director Byambasuren Davaa (The Story Of The Weeping Camel) has uniquely captured a child’s-eye view of the financial and environmental pressures facing the Mongolian nomadic lifestyle.
Veins Of The World is a gentle, message-led drama with
Amra (Bat-Ireedui Batmunkh), a 12 year-old boy who pores
over Youtube clips of singers and dreams about competing
in ’Mongolia’s Got Talent’, finds his way of life upended
when an accident changes his family life forever.
Originally, the Director had planned to make a
different fourth film set in her home country, but upon re-visiting Mongolia and seeing the countryside changed by the over-exploitation of mining companies, she decided to tackle this development in her new feature.
In Mongolia, as well as other parts of the world, the effect
of global mining for resources is quite severe, changing
the course of rivers if not depleting them altogether, while
at the same time taking away people’s living foundations,
with certain nomad tribes forced to move away and accept a
small compensation for the land they had been living on for so many generations.
Based on these effects, her own observations as well as an
old Mongolian folk tale, Davaa’s feature “Veins of the World”
tells a story about the unity of the world and its people, and
how greed has come to corrode this idea."
