“Echoes of the Empire: Beyond Genghis Khan” offers a stunning cinematic view of Mongolia’s past and present. Film director and novelist Robert H. Lieberman takes us into this vast country little known by many. New York Times best-selling author Jack Weatherford (Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World) opens the film, leading us through the remarkable evolution of Genghis Khan’s Mongol Empire—a realm which once encompassed all of Asia, the Middle East and Europe leading up to the doorsteps of Vienna. Intimate portraits of today’s Mongolians provide us with rare and revealing insights into the minds of these former warriors and nomads and the challenges they face in their post- Soviet world.


This is the third in the trilogy of films from the creative team at PhotoSynthesis Productions that includes the acclaimed Angkor Awakens and They Call It Myanmar—hailed as New York Times Critics’ Picks, distributed theatrically in the US and Europe, and broadcast globally by the BBC.
