The Hyderabad Film Club is screening a Mongolian film "Tuya's Marriage" on 6th January at Sarathi Studios, Ameerpet. The film is directed by Quanan Wang, and has Yu Nan, Bater, Baolier, Senge and Zhaya in the cast.
Set in remote inner Mongolian grasslands, Tuya's Marriage is the moving tale of Tuya, the iron-willed wife of Bater, a herdsman who has been paralyzed. Tuya takes up the sole responsibility to make a living for her family, but her hard labor endangers her health. Faced with a harsh reality, the couple decides to divorce so that Tuya can seek a better life.
Tuya's new husband will have to take care of Bater, their children, and their herding land. The strong-minded, stubborn, but gentle Tuya embarks on an arduous, and at times, unintentionally comic search for a new husband in this Mongolian design for living. She meets suitors who are rich, but disingenuous, or likable but shy. Wrenching and beautiful, Tuya's Marriage is the indelible portrait of a strong woman determined to save her family, herself, and their ancient way of life.
