As Long as the Wind Carries Us – 45min. documentary
August 2005 The nomads of Mongolia have become a symbol of their country's resilience. Glorified in poems and folk songs, romanticised by the West, the nomadic life has many admirers. But the reality of life in the saddle is very different. This week's offering is a picturesque and beautifully filmed journey through the rugged steppes of Mongolia. Fifteen years on from the fall of Communism, how is the country making the transition to a Capitalist society? A wistful look at a society on the cusp of change.
