Tracking the White Reindeer
Hamid Sardar, France, 2008 (50 min)
In the remote plains of northern Mongolia, the Tsaatan nomads are a proud people who live off hunting and gathering. They travel on the backs of reindeer, on which their survival completely depends. Quizilol, 18, and the beautiful Solongo are in love, but Solongo's father believes that the youth is not mature enough to marry his daughter. Only if Quizilol shows that he is capable of raising a herd of reindeer by himself will he marry Solongo. This is the third of Sardar's Central Asian films to be premiered at RMA. Like its predecessors, it was awarded Best Film on Mountain Culture at the Banff Film Festival (2008).
