  • Byambasuren Davaa, really Davaagiin Byambasüren, is a Mongolian film maker currently residing in Germany. Between 1995 and 1998 she studied at the Movie Academy in Ulaanbaatar. In 1998 she began to work as a moderator and director's assistant with Mongolian National Television. In 2000 she moved to Munich, Germany, to study documentary film and communication sciences at the University of Television and Film Munich. Her films through 2006 tell stories embedded in the traditional life of the nomads in Mongolia. The subjects of her movies also serve as amateur actors, playing mostly themselves, which positions her work somewhere between documentary and fiction. Her latest film Two Horses of Genghis Khan featuring the singer Urna's quest to find the origins of a song is due for release in Germany in 2010. She was a 2005 Academy Award nominee for her film The Story of the Weeping Camel.
