Still image from the film A Mongolian Tale
An orphaned boy named Beiyinpalica is taken-in by an old Mongolian woman and raised as her grandson. He grows up with the old woman’s granddaughter, with whom he shares everything. The two vow to marry after Beiyinpalica returns from his studies in the city. He returns after three years to find that his fiancée is pregnant with another man’s baby, something he cannot reconcile. The haunting and exotic landscape of the Mongolian steppes contrasts the modern ideals that threaten future generations. In Mandarin Chinese with English subtitles. Director Xie Fei is scheduled to be present. (2K DCP Presentation)
