Language: VOSC
Genre: Drama

Two sisters, Wessi and Ossi, who have lived more than twenty years apart with hardly any knowledge of each other, get in touch again when the one living in the West experiences an identity crisis and wants to return to her origins. Wessi, who has lived in Germany all this time, wonders about her personal and professional life, deciding to go and visit her sister without setting a returning date to Europe. The encounter with the past will open up surprisingly new perspectives in the life she has led until now, not without experiencing the culture shock that comes with the new circumstances she will find herself in, when she is in the Gobi desert, sharing the yurt with her sister and her nomadic family.

Uisenma Borchu was born in Mongolia in 1984, but has lived in Germany for most of her life, where she has studied journalism and television at the University of Munich. Throughout her career she has received several awards such as the Bavarian Film Festival Debut Directors Award and the Taipei Film Festival New Talent Competition Grand Prize. Black Milk is in many ways an autobiographical work in which the filmmaker plays the leading role. This great film highlights the need to promote intercultural dialogue between East and West in a global world like ours.
