Children’s Film Festival Seattle 2013 Day 6: US Premiere! My Avatar Horse (Mongolia) by Hu Keming and Liu Shen
The internationally lauded Children’s Film Festival Seattle returns to Asia Society Texas Center for more films overflowing with adventure and glee, wonder and magic. Now in its 8th year, the Festival has become one of the largest and most respected film festivals dedicated to children and their families. This year, curator Elizabeth Shepherd and her colleagues have created feasts for the eyes that take us from China to Colombia.
Husile and his white horse named Chagan are inseparable. In the prairie where they live, there is a legend about an obo (shrine) protected by the avatar horse. One day, Husile met three wise men who came from afar in search of the avatar horse. They are convinced that Chagan is the one they are looking for, and made the promise that a year later they will return to perform the reincarnation ceremony. Upon learning about this, Husile’s father dismisses the story as just a child’s tale. With the set date for the ceremony, Husile’s father decides to move the family into the city and sell Chagan. In order to keep him, Husile and his friends begin a most ingenious—and adventurous—rescue operation.
