dir. Lauren Knapp, Mongolia / USA, 85 min

In a country known for its nomadic traditions, a small group of rock musicians give Mongolia a 21st Century voice, combining traditional Mongolian instruments with Western music genres.

Particularly in the capital city of Ulaanbaatar, rock music is seen as a catalyst for freedom, the vehicle for international curiosity, and now, the medium for a new kind of Mongolian nationalism.

Live From UB follows the story of one of Mongolia’s most promising independent bands, Mohanik, as they create a new sound for their country and discover what it means to be Mongolian today.
