This Week's Film: The Story of the Weeping Camel
Cuisine: Mongolian

Synopsis: In this stirring documentary film, the nomadic way of life is the setting for a Mongolian camel that gives birth and abandons her newborn calf. In an effort to save it, two of the herders' young sons embark upon a trek through the Gobi desert in search of a shaman violinist to heal the calf.

Join me throughout the week on Chopstick Cinema for a closer look at the food and the film. My film review will be posted at the end of the week, along with a Mongolian recipe to go with it.
