finally able to form a bond with its calf, it can be seen crying. This shows that animals are capable of feeling and have emotions. This is reinforced in the film where we can see a young Mongolian baby that is taken care of by her mother. Whenever there was a scene involving the mother camel and calf, often times there was a scene that portrayed the Mongolian baby being taken care of by her family. The baby would often times be crying and must be soothed; this was normally done when her mother would sing her a lullaby that can be seen early on in the documentary. When the camel is weeping, the female Mongolian can be seen reenacting the lullaby she used to calm her human child. These actions all convey with the idea that the mother camel can feel of their actions and efforts. For the entire family is helping the two estranged camels connection, which normally humans would not fathom doing. This documentary makes a statement that these camels can make and form bonds, feel, and care for each other. The camel’s tears symbolize the connection it has newly formed with its young, which clearly shows that it is capable of feeling emotions. The reason behind the camel’s tears is similar to how a mother reacts to when it has just given birth or when it reconnects with a child. There is a strong maternal instinct that overcomes the mother figure and tears though they often times are associated with sadness, can mean happiness as well. It was only after the ritual was the mother camel able to truly acknowledge and appreciate her young, and it was during this realization came the onset of emotion which led it to cry. And this is the central event of the movie not only because it appeals to the viewer’s pathos or tugs at their heart strings, but it makes a strong claim that even amongst these beautiful animals there is a strong sense of humanity. That these creatures can feel emotions and this is a precious and magical moment between a mother and child.
