In July 2018, I travelled to Mongolia for 3 weeks with Liv Wheeler and her retreat participants to capture a pilgrimage for a documentary. We traveled over 1500 miles by jeep and horses to visit local communities and shamans, before arriving to meet the Dukha People of the White Reindeer.

The result was a feature-length documentary that’s currently in consideration at the Sundance Film Festival. The premise follows a group of women, led by a Kontomble Voice Diviner, pilgrimage into Northern Mongolia to heal the wounds created by modernity’s disconnection from our ancestors. Woven together by interviews and dreamlike vignettes, it’s a story of grief in being lost and forgotten, and how remembering our sacred relationship with the Little People, we truly can heal the world.

I find it rare that someone with such skill, expertise and professionalism also has the heart to back up their work.

For me, it is hard to think about Emmy’s work without feeling her tremendously beautiful heart and soul. Emmy walks through the world with such integrity, care, and genuine kindness. She’s also extraordinarily talented and has such a keen eye, focus as well as precision.

The expression of her work exudes quality. It also contains soul, which can be palpably experienced. I highly recommend Emmy!
