Mongolian Bling
Mongolian Bling
Directed by: Benj Binks / Australia, Mongolia / Mongolian, English, English Subtitles / 2012 / Documentary, Culture, Music / 90 minutes / West Coast Premiere

Forget about nomads and monks! It's hip hop that's making Mongolia move in the 21st century. Mongolian Bling jumps into the thriving music scene in the capital, Ulaanbaatar, and follows stars as they rap nationwide.  But beyond this bling lie a failed democracy, and a dying ancient culture that the elders mourn the loss of.  While many artists still aspire to the West, a handful are using hip hop to try and salvage their country's flailing democracy, and bringing Mongolia's rich musical history into their modern beats and rhymes.

In this ancient culture with a rich and turbulent history, the modern beats and rhymes of the street are breaking through and forging a new identity. Told through the passion of young rappers and the wisdom of traditional musicians, Mongolian Bling takes us from the bustling city streets to the snow-capped "hoods" - following the nation's rap stars as they "keep it real" with just a bit of bling.
