Movie recommendation...not looping, but musical

Just saw an amazing film: The Story of the Weeping Camel
It's on DVD, available thru Netflix...if you have any interest in 
simple traditional living in the modern world, the power of music in 
rituals, or if you want to see where a LOT of the inspiration for the 
desert worlds in Star Wars MUST have come from, check it out...and then 
go to the website to convince yourself that it wasn't all staged 


In short, it's a documentary about nomadic herders in Mongolia: yurts, 
Gobi Desert, big furry camels, etc. One of their camels gives birth to 
a colt that she rejects, so the herders call for a violinist to come 
and perform the reuniting ritual...
