An old, broken morin khurr (horse head fiddle) compels renowned Mongolian singer Urna Chahar Tugchi to take a road journey to Ulan Bator and the steppes of Mongolia.
Gracefully fusing documentary with fiction filmmaking, The Two Horses of Genghis Khan tracks a vocalist named Urna and her cathartic reconnection with the wealth of beauty contained in her homeland of Mongolia’s culture, society, and landscape in the shadow of the cultural revolution. Essential.
