Black Milk (Schwarze Milch)

Black Milk
2020 Zellner & Borchu Film

Two sisters meet again after decades of separation. At a young age Wessi moved to Germany, while Ossi stayed in Mongolia. Their world is turned upside down when Wessi returns to the Gobi Desert. Even after all these years the bond between both sisters has remained strong but the culture clash is causing tension. Wessi immediately wants to fully participate in the harsh nomadic life and admires Ossi’s everyday skills. Ossi, on the other hand, seems overwhelmed by Wessi’s modern attitude towards life and is even more unsettled when she realizes her sister is falling in love with the older neighbor. Wessi is desperate for his love and, as the rebel of the family, does not care about the traditions she didn‘t grew up with. A fight for love and recognition begins.
