The Cord of Life is a nostalgic love song to motherland. We travel with the film through the city’s electronic music night to the dancing and laughter accompanied by the horsehead violin music on the Mongolian grasslands.
The film will had its World Premiere at Asian Future section, at 35th Tokyo International Film Festival.
The cord that ties son to mother serves as a metaphor that binds the two generations and allows them to revisit the sounds of the past and the scent of the grassland in their memories. The loosening of this cord represents the physical demise of nomadic culture and the new generation's embrace and acceptance of their roots.
