Synopsis

In Mongolia’s grasslands, filmmaker Zhao Liang witnesses the signs of controversial upheaval due to and aggressive modern economy. BEHEMOTH travels between documentary and narrative, stark truth and allegory, dream and reality. Filmed in breathtaking 4K by Zhao Liang himself, BEHEMOTH is a feast of images, sounds and music, inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy.
From the acclaimed director of CRIME AND PUNISHMENT (Festival des 3 Continents 2007 - Best Film) and PETITION (Cannes Spécial Screenings 2009).

Produced by INA and Arte France
