Sweeping over the Gobi Desert wastelands wrought by Mongolia’s mining boom, “Colors of White Rock” captures the story of Maikhuu, one of the rare women truck drivers fighting for survival along the country’s hazardous coal roads. As we discover her ensnared in this highway, her journey holds up an astounding, poetically incisive mirror to the human and environmental costs of “Minegolia.”
