Director: Peter Brosens, Jessica Woodworth
“Beads together complex ideas and gorgeously wrought segments like pearls on a string.” - VarietyBagi is a nomadic shepherd living in Mongolia. As another harsh winter approaches, a plague descends forcing the nomads and animals into desolate mining towns. As Bagi learns of his destiny to become a shaman, he saves the life of a beautiful coal thief and together they uncover a plot to eradicate the nomads.Having been called “indescribable” by critics, co-director Peter Brosens sums up Khadak as: “The human condition seen through a Mongolian prism with its ongoing movements and tensions between past and future, between growth and decay, between creation and destruction, between the search for meaning and the encounter with the absurd.” Winner of the Luigi De Laurentiis Prize at Venice Film Festival.
