Hello again from the DAF Film Circle - where we view a film (at our own convenience), and then gather to discuss our responses to it. Not all the films will be directly related to Deep Adaptation, but they'll often cover issues we touch on regularly in this forum, and we'll also know we're speaking with other collapse-aware people.
Our next movie is The Story of the Weeping Camel.. 

The Story of the Weeping Camel (Mongolian: Ингэн нулимсIngen nulims, "Tears of the Camel") is a 2003 German docudrama distributed by ThinkFilm. It was released internationally in 2004. The film was directed and written by Byambasuren Davaa and Luigi Falorni. The plot is about a family of nomadic shepherds in the Gobi Desert trying to save the life of a rare white bactrian camel calf after it was rejected by its mother. Below is the link to the movie.


So the plan is - if you'd like to join us (all are welcome!),

   1) If you're interested click the 'going' or 'interested' box on this Event, to ensure we get the Zoom link to you
   2) watch the movie, in your own time - enjoy! 
   3) on the day, please log on and come join us.  You won't be being grilled - it's not 'homework! -  just an opportunity to exchange thoughts and impressions, and maybe have some new thoughts and ideas sparked by others' comments and questions.
We're looking forward to sharing our enthusiasm for great film with you,
Steve and Cat

  • What an extraordinary film! The landscapes, the people, and these two camels... All of it so deeply moving and beautiful.
    And the film is all the more fascinating when you know more about the back-story - but that's just the cherry on the cake.

    The camel stays in the picture
    How did Botok, a young dromedary living deep in the Gobi desert, become a movie star? Jessica Winter reports.
