Directed by Byambasuren Davaa and Luigo Falorni, The Story of the Weeping Camel captures an all-but-vanished way of life on the Mongolian steppes among nomadic camel herders. Tradition, myths, and family unity are essential elements of daily life depicted in the film, which was produced by Natalie Lambsdorff.
In What Remains of Us, a Tibetan refugee defies the Chinese authorities by carrying a video message from the Dalai Lama to show secretly to fellow Tibetans, who have been denied direct access to their spiritual and political leader for over fifty years. The film was directed by François Prévost and Hugo Latulippe and produced by Prévost and Yves Bisaillon.
