Reviews:
"★★★★. Mujaan is an utterly fascinating glimpse into a way of life that very few Americans will ever have the opportunity to experience firsthand. With the help of a glorious, simple soundtrack, what we observe on the screen almost takes on a mystical, hypnotic quality. Christopher McKee has done a beautiful, beautiful job. Worthy of Oscar consideration."

 

- Todd David Schwartz, CBS Radio

 


"Mujaan is a beautiful film of rural life in Mongolia. Carefully-constructed and thoughtfully paced, it really conveys the essence of what is today almost an ideal - the herding family's calm existence." 

 

- Anthropology Professor Caroline Humphrey, Cambridge University 

 


“Mujaan is simply beautiful.”
