Ulaanbaatar /MONTSAME/ At the ‘FLO Film Forum’ international filmmakers’ forum, being held in India on November 14-16, the ‘International Achiever’ award went to Mongolian artist U.Uranchimeg for her work on ‘Atgand Uldsen Erdene’ (Golden Treasure) film. Ms. Uranshimeg wrote, directed and starred in the film.

The storyline shows a girl who was raised in a manner of a man by her wrestler father, who desperately wants a son, but instead has four daughters. The father’s wish was caused by the social pressure to have sons as a wrestler, the symbol for masculinity. Thus, the story touches upon gender equality and human rights issues in a way.
