Follow a young woman doctor as her life shifts from a reindeer herding settlement in the taiga to Mongolia's capital Ulaanbaatar.
TRANSITION, a documentary from Nomadicare Films
After a digital premiere in March 2020 at San Luis Obispo International Film Festival, we decided to hold off on film festivals for a year and a half because of the pandemic. We are in the process of getting the film out, giving screenings in person when possible. Film festivals are streaming it in Italy, India, California, Germany, Macedonia, and more.
In Transition 27-year-old medical doctor Khongoroo grapples with what it means to remain in Mongolia’s capital Ulaanbaatar. She misses the beautiful but remote East Taiga, where two-dozen families and relatives live in a tight-knit Dukha reindeer herding community. Ulaanbaatar, a city of 1.5 million, offers her a job when the countryside does not. With work in the city, Khongoroo must decide whether to risk the health of her three-year old daughter in the polluted capital or leave her with her grandmother where the air is clean. Through the eyes and heart of Khongoroo, we experience the challenges from the city to the taiga and back that modern life brings.
