Black Milk (18*) + Recorded ScreenTalk with director Uisenma Borchu

Cinema On Demand

Two sisters in the desert look at one another, standing next to livestock

After years of living in Germany, a Mongolian woman returns to her family home in the steppes and experiences a new sexual liberation in Uisenma Borchu’s unique, beautifully filmed drama.

Two Mongolian sisters reunite in the Gobi Desert after decades of separation. Wessi returns after years of living in Germany, having left an abusive relationship, and wants to fully participate in the nomadic life, admiring the skills of Ossi, her sister who remained in Mongolia. Ossi is overwhelmed by the return of her sister, who has very different values to her, and is concerned when Wessi feels an erotic connection with an older neighbour.

This beautiful, often startling semi-autobiographical film offers a unique exploration of identity, culture clash, radical sensuality and transgression. It features excellent performances from director Uisenma Borchu and Gunsmaa Tsogzol as the sisters, whose complex relationship is the heart of this powerful drama.
