Meetup and Screening of a New Film by award-winning Cornell filmmakers

Please join fellow Cornellians in Washington, D.C. for the US Premiere of Echoes of the Empire: Beyond Genghis Khan. Prior to the Friday 7 pm screening, we will meet at the Kimpton Hotel's Dirty Habit at 5 pm.

Come and meet the film’s director Robert H. Lieberman '62 at this exciting event. This is also a rare opportunity to meet Ambassador Pamela Slutz (former U.S. Ambassador to Mongolia) and Ronald Deutch, former Deputy Chief of the U.S. Mission.

In this visually sumptuous film, New York Times best-selling author Jack Weatherford leads us through the remarkable evolution of Genghis Khan’s Mongol Empire. The film provides a rare look into Mongolia—it’s past and present.

This film comes from the critically acclaimed team of “Angkor Awakens” and “They Call It Myanmar.” More than 17 Cornellians assisted in the creation of the film with interviews, historical research, music, and post-production.


Screening Sponsored by The Mongolia Society and Cornell University’s Podell Endowment.

"Spectacular Cinematography... a fascinating incursion onto Mongolian history, culture, and politics." - RKS Film

"Far more than a visually magnificent film capturing Mongolia's remarkable natural beauty, Echoes of the Empire reveals a people proud of their traditions, their independence, and the freedoms they cherish. As the United States and Mongolia grow ever closer, this film highlights much of what brings our countries together." - Michael Klecheski, United States Ambassador to Mongolia
