SCREENING: Taiga. A Journey to Northern Mongolia by Ulrike Ottinger (Germany), 510 min
Over eight hours long, this documentary depicts the daily life and practices of nomadic peoples from the Darkhad mountain valley to the Sojon Urinjanghai in northern Mongolia. Divided into 38 stations, the film documents ceremonies such as weddings, festivals, and shamanistic practices, as well as gatherings, offerings, songs, dances, and professions. Following the different scenes rendered in real time, we get familiar with the normadic peoples’ way of living, their relationship to each other, to the animals, and to the land. Installed in five parts as part of the current exhibition Ulrike Ottinger: China. The Arts – The People, Photographs, and Films from the 1980s and 1990s, this screening provides audiences with the opportunity to watch the film in one sitting.
