Steppe Man

Steppe Man by Shamil Aliyev was the Azerbaijani entry into the 86thAcademy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film. The story follows the life of a young camel herder,deeply in tune with the natural rhythms of the land he lives on, and the animals he tends to. The passing of his father and the arrival of a woman from another world, and another epoch, define the transition from one life into another, and what is lost and what is gained. Steppe Man is packed with a potent gravity, providing for a thoughtful, visually spectacular audience experience certain to fulfil the viewer.
