Following Zanabazar’s tracks on the back of a horse

<p><strong>Some internet searches, an unknown character, and a fascinating story. I did not need much more to make my decision. </strong></p> <p>After deepening my research, I decided to ride a horse for a part of my journey, and got in touch with local breeders. I will stay a few days in the capital city, then go for<strong> three weeks in the Orkhon valley with the horses to reach some remote locations which are not accessible by car. I wish to lessen my ecological impact the most possible</strong>, and riding a horse seems a great option in this perspective.</p> <p><strong>Finally, my trip will end in Pekin. My goal is to screen this documentary in public libraries and other cultural structures. </strong></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2><em>Who am I ?</em></h2> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p><strong>My name is Thibault Srocki, and I am a 21 years old political science student from Lille, a Northern French city.</strong></p> <p>I&rsquo;ve always been passionate about travels and adventures. In my teenage years, I read and enjoyed the works of Jack London, Sylvain Tesson, and many others. These books and my experience with the French Scouts pushed me to travel to Latvia&nbsp;for an international solidarity project and to complete a hitchhiking tour of Ireland.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <h2><em>Zanabazar, a fascinating life</em></h2> <p><em><strong>A reincarnation, an artist, a descendant of Genghis Khan and a suspicious death</strong>.</em></p> <p><em>Recognised as Tibetan lama reincarnation, Zanabazar (1635-1723) was a Buddhist leader in Mongolia but also a fabulous sculptor, painter and poet, nicknamed the <strong>&ldquo;Asian Michelangelo&rdquo;</strong>. Despite destructions, its artwork stay considerable.</em></p> <p><strong><em>The objective of my documentary is for people to discover Zanabazar works, its life, the monasteries and other places related to him</em></strong></p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><em>Therefore, I will start my documentary at the <strong>Fine arts museum of Zanabazar.</strong> After I will go to Kharkhorin and the Erdene Zuu monastery. <strong>From there I will buy the horses to my contact and start the horsetrip in the Orkhon Valley.&nbsp;</strong></em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p><img alt="" src="" width="100%" /></p> <p><em>After that, my travel is subject to changements due to the fact that people I will encounter might advise me to continue my investigation in other places. Thus, I grant myself two weeks more in Mongolia before going to Beijing.</em></p> <p><em>Then, I should arrive in Beijing for the 5th of June, There, I will try to find last tracks of Zanabazar where he died in 1723.</em></p> <p><strong><em>My objective is to organise a first projection in march 2020.</em></strong></p> <p><em>Thank you in advance for your support</em></p> <p>&nbsp;</p>
