Mongolia - In The Shadow of Genghis Khan - About the film

A magic country, searching for its present face in the heritage of the 13th century, once became the largest empire that the world has ever seen, known as Pax Mongolica. Feared, cursed and also admired, the same as its founder, in his life never defeated, the chieftain Genghis Khan. On our adventurous quest through inhospitable nature, away from the usual routes, we discovered the other, unknown and surprisingly open-minded side of the aggressive conqueror, whose innovative efforts left a much deeper footprint in the thinking and development of the whole of human society than we are willing to admit.
