Since 1994, I have been working with Mongolian nomads. In the beginning, I helped the herders with health care. Then after some years, I realized that the nomadic way of life is at risk of disappearing. It was then that I started making documentary films of the nomadic herders. Our non-profit Nomadicare supports the sustainability and cultural survival of nomadic peoples by harmonizing traditional and modern medicine and documenting nomadic life ways, lore and heart songs.
I have directed three documentary feature films:
Gobi Women's Song 2006, update 2008 82 minutes In Mongolian and English with English subtitles. Mongolian nomadic women share the song of their soul. Shown at three festivals.
Ceremony 2015 Length 45 minutes In Mongolian and English with English subtitles. A spiritual journey among shamans in northern Mongolia. Screened around New England, New York City, Chicago, Washington DC, and Mongolia.
Migration 2016 Length 80 minutes In Mongolian with English subtitles . A film about modern day nomads in Mongolia. This film won the top award at the San Franscisco Earth Day Festival, a top award at the Parnu Film Festival in Estonia, and an honorable mention at the International Film Awards in Berlin.
