Mujaan (The Craftsman)
Mujaan (The Craftsman) is a twenty-five minute poetic record of how Mongolian nomads have built their yurts by hand for the past 1,000 years.
On the distant steppes of Mongolia, using only simple tools, strength and ingenuity, a nomad builds a home much the way his ancestors have for the past one thousand years. Mujaan (The Craftsman) is a vivid window to a disappearing way of life in a pristine wilderness.
