Artist and Disney designer Joe Rohde sets out on a month-long horseback expedition across the Altai Mountains of western Mongolia with the intention of painting large-scale landscapes to raise funds for Snow Leopard conservation. Facing blizzards, rebellious camels and the rapidly approaching Mongolian winter, Rohdeв’s pilgrimage explores why we travel, how we interact with the world, and the monumental effect that has on everything else – including the elusive and enigmatic snow leopard. Directed by James McEachen. Produced by James McEachen, Joe Rohde, and Jalsa Urubshurow.
Hosted and moderated by Chris Palmer, Distinguished Film Producer in Residence at American Universityв’s Center for Environmental Filmmaking, School of Communication. Discussion with filmmaker James McEachen and Joe Rohde, subject of the film, follows screening.
