520 |a The nomadic goat herders of Mongolia, who live on the plains southwest of Ulan Bator, are thriving in the new economic climate. Long controlled by the government, wool from the cashmere goats is now on the free market. Here, on the broad plateau, the sale of large volumes of fine cashmere wool is negotiated between tribespeople and traders.We get a close- up look at several nomadic families whose traditional ways have been changing. Riyshya traded his wool for a stylish new motor bike on which he proudly cruises the plateau. Clearly, new commodities are being introduced. Rice, which had always been scarce, has become part of the staple diet. The small community has established its own school, so children no longer have to travel long distances daily.Among the herders, all important matters are discussed together as a group. The film provides a fascinating insight into a traditional community successfully adapting to changing times.
