Films, documentaries, concerts, dance, music and lectures

Eight centuries ago, Gengis Khan established the Mongul empire. Mongolia, whose territory has shrunk over time, is one of the most beautiful countries of the world. The desert camels, the wild horses of the steppes, the echoes of morin huur and diaphonic song will - fascinate the traveller on his way to a Buddhist monastery or a yurt ; and sometimes the passer-by will come across some amazing wrestlers. Through films, lectures, shows and documentaries, we shall encounter the last reindeer men of the Taïga, shamans, the renascent Lamaism, and also ordinary people… It was “The story of the weeping camel” that recently introduced Mongolian cinema to the general public. From “Norjmaa’s Way” (1938) to “The Yellow Dog of Mongolia” (2006), Mongolian producers, trained at the famous Russian state cinema school V.G.I.K., tell us the human story of this country. And don’t forget the surprise : “Joan of Arc of Mongolia” the last film starring Delphine Seyrig !
