Synopsis

Western pop music only seeped through piecemeal to Ulan Bator, the capital of Mongolia, over the last decades. Today it has a vibrant music scene, complete with video clips, boy bands and all other Western clichés. Traditional throat singing still lives on, however, especially among grunge bands.

This film is not currently playing on MUBI but 30 other great films are. See what's now showing
