Mongolian Bling

On April 27, the Projecting Change Film Festival screened Mongolian Bling, an award-winning documentary about Mongolian hip hop.

Benj Binks, the Australian director of the film, happens to be in town for a couple more days, so I’ve invited him to UBC on Monday, April 29, for a discussion about the film, but also about pop culture, social change, and youth in Mongolia more broadly.

Anyone would be very welcome to join us for this informal discussion.

We will be meeting at 10:30h [change from original noon] in Room 129 of the Institute of Asian Research, 1855 West Mall on the UBC Campus.
