Mongolian Film "A Pearl in the Forest" (Moilkhon)

Directed by Enkhtaivan Agvaantseren

The Making

Highslide JS

This film is one of the first films aimed at retracing the history of the different ethnic groups that compose Mongolia. It is also one of the first films that openly speaks of the events of the 1930’s and the impact of the rise of Soviet communism on Mongolia.

It was shot on location, in the same region where these events took place (in the Khentii province, north-eastern Mongolia); and the participation of many actors and extras from the Buryat village of Dadal has greatly added to the authenticity of the film. The testimony of the events that marked the Buryats in these difficult times was also a subject very dear to the heart of Director Agvaantseren Enkhtaivan, because they occurred in his native region.

The outcome is a very strong and a poignant story with a human dimension, and an essential and authentic film that underscores the struggle of these characters overtaken by events much larger than themselves. View this area on a Google map.
