From nomad to city life

7th July 2006 at 01:00
The Cave of the Yellow Dog is a film about Nansal, a young Mongolian girl who befriends a wild dog. Set in stunning landscapes, it illustrates the tensions between traditional and modern ways of life - Nansal's family are nomads, but she attends a city boarding school. A study guide suggests useful ways for key stage 2 children to explore this intriguing blend of drama and documentary. There are questions about values like friendship and loyalty, about beliefs - including reincarnation - and issues arising from urbanisation and cultural change.
