Tracing Genghis Khan

The trek of the tuva

A film by Wolfgang Luck and Robert Tasso Pütz

Thirty families of the Tuva tribe trek 2,000 kilometres across the Mongolian desert. It is the biggest caravan since the time of Genghis Khan. It is also a spectacular return of a nearly extinct nomadic tribe to their homelands. A unique cinematic document about the resurging pride of an ancient people.
