Cave of the Yellow Dog
Cast: Urjindorj Batchuluun, Batbayar Batchuluun, Nansal Batchuluun
New film by Mongolian director Byambasuren Davaa titled "Cave of the Yellow Dog" tells the story of a young Mongolian girl's adoption of a wild dog. This film is a combination of documentary style and scripted feature film making with an intense appreciation of the Mongolian pastoral nomad way of life. The threat of predatory wolves, at-risk sheep and a Mongolian child's emotional attachment to her favourite animal combine to create a strong tale of life on the edge in the Mongolian countryside.
