Darkhad Valley

Darkhad Valley

Darkhad Valley, sponsored by the non profit organization Mongol Ecology Center and acclaimed photographer and cinematographer, Jeff Colhoun. This documentary highlights the importance of preservation in Mongolia's remote regions and captures the global significance of conservation in these areas as well as the native endangered species sheltered within. Wildlife in Mongolia is under relentless siege by overhunting and excessive illegal trade that has resulted in alarming declines in most species in the region. Darkhad Valley follows park rangers of Mongolia's Ulaan Taiga parks administration, working tirelessly to protect globally significant landscapes, endangered species, and resources. They cover hundreds and thousands of square kilometers of dangerous terrain with bare minimum support and equipment. This film has helped to raise awareness of the movements dedicated to improving the protection of our planet, and to enhance the lives and safety of dedicated park rangers. Darkhad Valley serves as an authentic and insider look at the stories of the fearless park rangers as agents of change, passionate preservationists, and homeland heroes who are protecting these great resources. Colhoun's goal when creating the film was to document the struggles and reality of conservation in one of the worlds last frontiers.

The reason I feel that this movie is such a TRIUMPH is the same reason I feel I lead a fulfilling life. I strive to live in the moment...to view my journey in life as exactly that: a journey.

Big, Bold, Exciting - a true triumph! I was absolutely blown away and remember thinking throughout the film - I want more of this - up until the end when I was generally sorry to be leaving the cinema.
