Urga Song
URGA SONG is a lyrical cine-poem portraying democratic Mongolia from the perspective of young artists residing in the capital city of Ulaan Baatar. Poetic imagery of stark landscapes, dramatic cityscapes and the community of avant-garde artists in Ulaan Baatar is accompanied by the voices of a choreographer and a painter who eloquently address freedom, democracy and the relationship between art and politics. Raised under a Soviet-dominated socialist regime and then confronted with societal upheaval when democracy and capitalism were embraced, these sensitive individuals grant the viewer an invaluable perspective upon the challenges of post-communism.
