Starting with the personal and intimate origin story of Genghis Khan, Lieberman weaves a rich and close-knit tale of the entire history of the Mongolian people—effortlessly mixing past, present and future in its entire epic splendor.
— Karsten Kastelan, German Film Critics Association
Far more than a visually magnificent film capturing Mongolia’s remarkable natural beauty, Echoes of Empire reveals a people proud of their traditions, their independence, and the freedoms they cherish. As the United States and Mongolia grow ever closer, this film highlights much of what brings our countries together.
— Michael Klecheski, United States Ambassador to Mongolia
Absolutely, the best documentary ever made on Mongolia…Digs past the stereotypes. I think this will be important long into the future.
— Jack Weatherford, New York Times bestselling author, “Genghis Khan and the Making of the Modern World.”
What a beautiful film. I have seen lots of films about Mongolia but this is the first time I really learned something new about this country and its people.
