‘Kiran over Mongolia’

is a documentary that tells the story of a young Kazakh boy who leaves Mongolia's capital to learn his grandfather's tradition of hunting with eagles. Set against some of the most foreboding, yet austerely majestic mountains in the world, the film explores the beautiful relationships between eagle and master, and master and apprentice. KIRAN captures the essence of Kazakh culture, which has been preserved during seventy years of isolation in the far west of Mongolia.

Description


A new film by Sas Carey. $15

Set against the background of barren expanses, Gobi Women's Song
immerses the viewer in a different world. It is a world in a transitional moment, one that has occurred in all cultures, which decides the future lives, environment, and lifestyle of its people. Five 21st century nomadic women share their lives in Mongolia's Gobi Desert. These are women who live the same life their ancestors did 3000 years ago women who still hum with the song of the soul passed down from their grandmothers.
