Chamán [Shaman] (2018)
Director: David Gómez Rollán
82 minutes
Mongol, English; Turkish and English subtitles

Chamán [Shaman] presents an extensive reflection on the deep relationship between humans and their natural surroundings. Exploring the impacts of climate change as well as the mismanagement of environmental and social issues in Mongolia, the 2018 documentary film follows the recent rise of shamans as the protectors of nature and its sources for the future of local communities.

Specialized in Asian culture and societies, director David Gómez Rollán gathers many different stories in which everything about wildlife, nomads, artisanal miners, climate refugees, and shamans are intertwined.

*According to the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate published last September: …the shrinking cryosphere in the Arctic and high-mountain areas has led to predominantly negative impacts on food security, water resources, water quality, livelihoods, health and well-being, infrastructure, transportation, tourism and recreation, as well as culture of human societies, particularly for Indigenous people.
