Win a DVD

29th October 2004 at 01:00
There's a good chance that the camel won't be the only one weeping by the end of Byambasuren Davaa and Luigi Falorni's touching and magical film of life in Mongolia's Gobi Desert, The Story of the Weeping Camel.

Using a mix of documentary and recreated scenes, it tells the story of a group of nomadic herdsmen whose way of life is gradually being eroded.

During the camels' birthing season, all goes well until the final delivery, when the mother rejects her new calf and refuses to feed it. Two young children are sent on a mission to fetch a musician whose magical rituals are the last hope of reuniting mother and calf, and saving the young camel's life.

The film is released on DVD by Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment to rent or buy on Monday, but we have four copies to give away. For a chance of winning one, send an email or postcard, quoting Weeping Camel offer, to the address on the right. Include your full name and address and a contact phone number. The first four names out of the hat on November 4 will win.
