Veins of the World

Die Adern der Welt

Rating: PG13 (Some Coarse Language 些许粗俗语言)

Synopsis

Eleven-year-old Amra and his family live the traditional Mongolian way, respecting their land despite the onslaught of international mining companies. Struggling to resist the ways of big corporations and the threat to their livelihoods, Amra and his community find their resilience tested. In time, Amra must decide between forsaking his dreams in order to care for his family or find the courage to stay true to himself.

Veins of the World reflects how indigenous communities deal with the imposition of modernity on longstanding traditions. With its strong message on youth empowerment through the conservation of indigenous heritage, the film had its world premiere in the Generation section at this year’s Berlin International Film Festival.
