This film was the first to ever be made by a wester team about Mongolia and its people.
Mongolia is as large as all of Western Europe, but the population of this remote land is a mere 1.5 million. Mongolia is literally on the edge of the world, with the Gobi Desert, the largest desert in all of Asia bordering this remote and ancient land. This documentary gives a rare look at life in a land considered by the western world too remote to be explored until now.
The documentary series “Disappearing World” was originally broadcasted between 1970-1975.
As an anthropological landmark of its time, the series tells the story of traditional communities endangered by the modern world’s progressions.
The series stands as a historical document of daily life in remote and threatened societies, such as the Cuiva, Embera and Panare Indians of Colombia, the nomadic Tuareg of the Sahara, the Kurdish Dervishes, and the Meo of China.
