      A multiple award winning 2015 Berlinale Official Selection
       This mesmerizing adventure of magic, love and loyalty begins with the birth of a tiny white camel, born under the camel-shaped cloud which brings good luck.   The beautiful family who own this “Celestial Camel” must sell him to a movie producer in order to raise money for their newborn baby -- a severe drought has made life difficult, drastic measures must be taken. When the baby camel is sold, its mother seizes the first opportunity to run away to find her baby. The family’s twelve-year-old son, Bayir sets out on a mission to bring back the mother-camel. He meets kind and evil people along his journey and the summoners of rain, a disciple of Lama, help him on the way.  This fantastic journey is shot in the most breathtaking landscapes of the Mongolian Steppe adding an ethereal dimension to the picture. Life and love prevail in sometimes harsh circumstances as long as we continue to follow our hearts.  
      Celestial Camel is a universal story that touches the heart and soul of everyone who sees it.
