The Cave of the Yellow Dog

This is a spectacular movie, Cave of the Yellow Dog. It was made by a Mongolian-born, German-raised director. Her desire was to show the life of the nomad, which is slowly disappearing. The scenery is breathtaking, the family is filmed in a spontaneous docu-drama style, the pace is gentle, serene, and fearless. And though it was made in 2005, I had heard about it only last week from a friend of mine. Thank goodness for public libraries. I think I would go mad without them.
