Horse Tamer

86 mins


In the Darhat Valley of northern Mongolia, horses of the nomad tribes continue to vanish. Shukhert, a Darhat horseman dedicated to protecting and reclaiming his herd, tracks bandits to the edge of the Mongolian taiga, all the way to the Siberian border. Director Hamid Sardar spent the last 10 years documenting the Darhat nomad’s way of life and is inevitably invited to follow Shukhert on his eternal journey. Between tribal rivalries, smuggling and traditions, Sardar wonders what horse-stealing says about modern-day Mongolia.
