Dr. Steeve Coupeau Goes One‐on‐One with Robert H. Lieberman, Director of “Echoes of The Empire: Beyond Genghis Khan”, 6/6/22

Mongolia, Robert H. Lieberman

NYIHA MEDIA: What is the significance of the film's title?

Director Lieberman: After much brainstorming and debate in the studio we finally settled on “Echoes of The Empire: Beyond Genghis Khan.” We wanted a title that reflected the film— and I think this does it, because the film is a sweeping view of Mongolia, reflecting both its past and how that impacts modern Mongolians today.

NYIHA MEDIA: Your documentary features a large number of interviewees from high‐profile personalities, to members of parliament to artists. Can you talk about the selection of your interviewees?

Director Lieberman: I think what’s interesting about the film is that, at first glance, is it is not character driven. But actually, it really is. The main character is Mongolia itself, the country and its people.

I like to describe this film a “novelist’s eye view“ of Mongolia. Of course, I am a novelist and storyteller. So, what you the viewer are witnessing is what I discovered about this unique land.

Yemen: Ancestral Honey Production at Risk by ICRC 6/13/22

Honey, Yemen


Yemen has long been renowned for producing some of the best honey in the world, but enormous losses have been inflicted on the industry since the outbreak of the conflict in 2011. Successive waves of displacement to flee violence, the impact of weapon contamination on production areas, and the growing impact of climate change are pushing thousands of beekeepers into precarity, significantly reducing production. In short, armed conflict and climate change are threatening the continuity of a 3,000‐ year‐old practice.

The history of beekeeping in Yemen goes back at least to the beginning of the 1st millennium B.C. For centuries, this practice has been an indispensable part of economic life in Yemen, but today after years of conflict combined with climate change, thousands of beekeepers are struggling to survive.
