Puujee

by Kazuya Yamada Documentary Giappone/Japan 2006 110'

During a journey across the Mongolian steppes, explorer-photographer Yoshiharu Sekino meets Pujee, a 6-year-old nomad girl. The two instantly make friends, forming a long-lasting bond despite initial diffidence and profound differences. In a delicate, often touching manner, Kazuya Yamanda documents Pujee growing up in an uncontaminated world. Strong and determined for her young age, Pujee is already an essential part of her family, whose livelihood and survival, like those of other nomad groups, are seriously threatened by the change to a market economy.
