The Wild, Wild East – On Horseback Through the Caucasus

1 x 45 min / 1 x 54 min


“The Wild, Wild East” sets out for a horse trekking tour through the fascinating Tusheti region located on the northern slopes of the Greater Caucasus Mountains and bordered by the Russian trouble spots Chechnya and Dagestan. Amongst this fascinating, unspoiled mountainous area, far away from the modern world, lies Tusheti where people still ride horses, live in simple stonehouses and breed sheeps or cattle. The documentary shows the harsh living conditions of the inhabitants in Tusheti, their mentality and mannerism but also their sustaining nativeness and cordiality. It is an adventurous ride into the past, into the wild, wild East.
