Nomad Hunters and Migration
Three documentary works in Mongolia are on display here. Please read the synopsis at the end of this page.
Eagle Hunters — Only around 400 traditional eagle hunters are left in the world. The tradition is precious and unless your father was an eagle hunter, you cannot become one. Joel has been documenting Eagle Hunters since 2015.
Tsaatan (Reindeer people) — 1000 km into the depths of Northern Mongolia to visit the Ganbaa family, near Khovsgol Lake, led by matriarch Purev, a widowed reindeer herder. Joel has been documenting the Tsaatan since 2016.
Nomad Kazakh Migration — Largely based in Western Mongolia, Kazakhs are a nomadic people who brave blizzards, extreme hot and cold weather and rocky mountain paths several times a year. Joel has been documenting migrations since 2015.
