Awards : Award of the All-Russian Film Festival of Auteur Film
“Artkino” in Moscow, 2009
The movie is about the karmic circle of human destiny. When translated from Tuva language, “Ochalan” means a Buddhist notion of the wheel, a constant circle of life, destiny, space. While the movie “Ochalan” tells a story of first love that hardly started to arise but eventually not having taken place, a story of fatal fate. How great simple human happiness might be – this is the main idea of the movie.
