On the Trail of Genghis Khan

Witness the journey of a lifetime
‘On the Trail of Genghis Khan’ screens at Key City Theatre on October 4
There’s an ancient Kazakh saying, “To understand the wolf, you must put on the skin of the wolf and look through its eyes.”
For young Australian adventurer Tim Cope, understanding meant travelling 10,000 kilometres on horseback – alone – across the Eurasian steppe through Mongolia, Kazakhstan, Russia, Ukraine, and Hungary, following the route taken by the legendary Genghis Khan as he forged his great empire.
The award-winning film, On The Trail of Genghis Khan, chronicles Cope’s journey from the former Mongol capital, Karakorum, to the Danube. The film will be screened at Key City Theatre on Friday, October 4 at 7:00 PM, presented by Wildsight Kimberley-Cranbrook.
When Cope set out on his journey, there was no certainty – no camera crew, no escape route – and he could barely ride a horse. Over three and a half years, he braved plateaux populated by wolves, the glaciated Altai Mountains, deep forests, extreme cold and heat, violent clashes between conflicting communities, and suffered the greatest tragedy of his life. 
The Trail of Genghis Khan is an awe-inspiring film,” says Wildsight Kimberley-Cranbrook Branch Manager Helen Sander. “It allows us to discover Tim’s insights into the nomadic way of life and join him on a personal rite of passage. Our screening of this film last year in Kimberley created quite a buzz, and we’re excited to be able to show it in Cranbrook.”
The film will be shown at Key City Theatre on Friday, October 4 at 7:00 PM. Admission is by donation, with a suggested donation of $10. Doors will open at 6:30 PM. The epic runs 165 minutes.
