The Dukha

Mongolia, USA
8 mins


The Dukha is an informative, yet whimsical short film that depicts one of Mongolia’s last cohorts of nomadic reindeer herders. Via a combination of documentary-style footage and enchanting stop motion, this film illustrates the symbolic significance of the reindeer in Mongolian culture, the ins and outs of reindeer herding and the profound way in which the herding lifestyle facilitates familial connections. —Julia Cieciuch, age 16
