A stunning epic to kick off our season, Mongol is filmed in the very lands that gave birth to Genghis Khan. Award-winning Russian filmmaker Sergei Bodrov transports us back to a distant, exotic period in world history; to stunning landscapes of endless space, climatic extremes and ever-present danger. Based on leading scholarly accounts Mongol delves into the dramatic and harrowing early years of the boy born as Temudgin in 1162. As it follows him from his perilous childhood to the battle that sealed his destiny, the film paints a multidimensional portrait of a man and leader far from the stereotype of a brutish Genghis Khan.
With its breathtaking landscapes, bloody battles, bitter betrayals and an aching love story, Mongol is a sumptuously crafted epic.
