The Mongolian National Commission for UNESCO in collaboration with the Film and Audiovisual Records Center and the Mongolian National Broadcaster organizes an event to raise public awareness of the need for preservation, to highlight importance of audiovisual heritage, to attract media attention to this issues and to give opportunity to students who are from the relevant field, such as history and journalism.
During this event two documentary films will be screened: “Current Mongolia” which was selected to be screened as it is a great example of audiovisual heritage and Mongolian first silent documentary film, and a documentary about Mr. Zorig Sanjaasuren, a prominent Mongolian politician and leader of the country’s 1990 democratic revolution. The latter authored by prominent Mongolian film-director Mr. J.Norolkhoo, who during the event will exchange on the importance of audio-visual archives with students from History and Journalism classes of Mongolian National University and Otgontenger University. A photo exhibition will also be inaugurated to sensitize on the importance of visual heritages.
