The Cave of The Yellow Dog

cave-of-the-yellow-dog.jpgThe Cave of the Yellow Dog (trailer) is a moving Mongolian film that deals with the issues of family, loyalty and reincarnation. When a young girl returns home with a dog she’s found, she’s unaware of the impact this seemingly helpless creature will have upon her family.
Filmmaker Byambasuren Davaa say of his movie, “What I tried to do was to fit myself in with their lives. The nomads respect nature and they subordinate themselves to nature. They don’t just sort of go out and say, ‘oh, horrible weather today, it’s too hot or it’s too cold.’ Instead, they fit in with the weather as it is and similarly what I wanted to do when I made the film was to fit in with their rhythm, with the way that they lead their lives.
