IN FOCUS: NEW GERMAN CINEMA
Genre
/mängufilm/

Uisenma Borchu sophomore film (her first feature "Don’t Look At Me That Way" played in the first feature competition of the Black Nights in 2015) features a young woman searching for her roots, played by the director herself.

After years of living in Germany, Wessi visits her sister Ossi in their homeland of Mongolia. Different values clash from the start, but the problems intensify, when Wessi starts to feel a unique erotic connection with Terbish, a mysterious older man living a traditional existence on the steppes. Another radically sensual work from this outstanding filmmaker, transgresses Mongolian as well supposedly more liberal western conventions.
