The Fire Within

In der Mitte ein Feuer

The film accompanies Gernot Gleiss on his journey to the Tuvans, a small nomad tribe in Western Mongolia. The Austrian photographer has set out to document the Tuvans' everyday life, their traditions, customs and manners with his pictures. «Before it's gone», says Gleiss who has visited the Tuvans once before in 2008, and he adds: «Their traditional way of life is about to vanish». Together with Galsan Tschinag, the renowned chieftain and spiritual leader of theTuvan nomads, Gleiss has decided to publish a book about the Tuvans, people on the brink of a new age. The film shows Gleiss at work in the fall camp of the Tuvans where he has been livingin his own yurt for over three weeks. Finally the book of Gleiss and Tschinag as well as the film «The Fire Within» have become a unique document of a people who's traditional way of life will soon be gone forever.
