If Only I Could Hibernate (12A)

Dir. Zoljargal Purevdash
2023 | 98 mins| Mongolia
Mongolian with English subtitles
Taivanbat Alexandar, Batmandakh Batchuluun, Tuguldur Batsaikhan

When gifted high school student Ulzii unexpectedly wins a local physics competition in Mongolia’s capital city Ulaanbaatar, he sees an opportunity to escape his deprived neighbourhood by competing in the national finals for the chance of a university scholarship. But when his struggling mother returns to the countryside in search of work, he must balance the demands of looking after his younger siblings during a harsh winter with pursuing his academic dreams.

The first Mongolian film to ever play in official selection at Cannes, writer/director Zoljargal Purevdash’s beautifully photographed debut feature is a hope-filled coming-of-age drama about resilience and determination against the odds.
