Wednesday, 2nd July.

Khangai Herds is an observational film about the coexistence of herding families and the herd animals living amongst them in the Khangai mountains of Mongolia. Herders successfully integrate themselves within their herd’s social structure by taking the role of lead animal in the herd, socially engaging and communicating daily in a constant cross-species, cross-cultural, human-other animal dialogue. This is achieved through herders and herd animals growing up amongst one another from birth and throughout important stages in their lives.The film screening will be followed by a short discussion.

The film is part of the monthly film series Asia and the Pacific Screens, sponsored by the Australian Centre on China in the World.
