Our final feature-length documentary in the Peoples of the World trilogy is The Last Kazakh Nomads of Mongolia (Peoples of the World: The Altai Kazakh) (2018, 60 minutes). This film is not rated; it contains scenes, such as hunting, that some viewers may find disturbing. We advise viewer discretion.
A people for all seasons, a culture for all reasons. "Among the last of the world's nomadic people, the Kazakh endure the harshest climate on Earth as they tenaciously preserve their culture. This documentary offers a fascinating glimpse inside that culture. Learn how a boy's coming-of-age is marked by his first haircut. Hear about Mongolia's first, legendary eagle huntress who is only now being honored. Spend a day with Kazakh eagle hunters. And witness how this ancient, rich lifestyle is slowly changing."
