The Forum Presents 'The Story of the Weeping Camel'

Oct. 21, 2005 – "The Story of the Weeping Camel" will play at The Forum, Market Square East on Wednesday, Nov. 2, at 7 p.m.
Set amid the vast expanse of South Mongolia's Gobi Desert, this film follows the adventures of a family of camel herders who face a crisis when one mother camel rejects her newborn following a particularly difficult delivery. Invoking an ancient ritual, the family sends two of its young boys to the capital city to enlist the aid of a musician whom they believe will coax the mother camel into nursing her baby.
Wall Street Journal: "Please see this movie."
Washington Post: "The movie, a lyrical blend of documentary and fiction filmmaking techniques, offer a bold example of the rewards of crossing boundaries—stylistic, cultural, temporal and even commercial."
New York Daily News: "Even the hardest heart must melt in the face of 'The Story of the Weeping Camel.'"
