UMS on Film: AnDa Union: From the Steppes to the City (2011, Sophie Lascelles and Tim Pearce)
Filmmakers Sophie Lascelles and Tim Pearce preview their work-in-progress documentary which follows AnDa Union, a group of 14 musicians who all hail from the Xilingol Grassland area of Inner Mongolia, a semi-autonomous region of China. Formed in 2003, AnDa Union is part of a musical movement that is finding inspiration in old and forgotten folk music from the nomadic herdsman cultures of Inner and Outer Mongolia, drawing on a repertoire of music that all but disappeared during China’s recent tumultuous past.

Each film is introduced by a cultural expert and reveals something of the emotions and ideas behind the creative process. For more information, please visit http://www.ums.org.
