Summary of Interview 090631A with Sarantuya
Sarantuya talked about the development of film and the art of cinematography in Mongolia. In 1910 Marquis Klimanturski (We have not been able to identify this person further) who came from Broadway presented to the Bogd Javsandamba Hutagt film projection equipment together with a film of the Pansan lama fairy tale. Such interesting information Sarantuya’s gave us in her interview. The world began watching films in 1895 and after a few years the elite of Mongolia had the opportunity to watch them. She emphasized a good film script was needed in the first turn to produce good feature movies. In the socialist period there used to be nomadic film projectionists. Disregarding cold weather they transported the documentaries and the feature films on camel and horse carts to show to the people thus disseminating culture and actively doing the education and propaganda work. She graduated from the economy section of the All Union Cinematography Institute and she is quite well aware of the Mongolian film art that she has studied. The prevailing parts of the documentaries about Mongolia and the Halh Gol war are preserved in Moscow, she mentioned in particular. At this time of further strengthening of the friendly relations with the neighboring countries, it would be a good thing for the officials in leading state positions to raise a question about transferring them to the Mongolian archives. In fact, it is vitally important to develop the documentaries more than feature films until they reach the international standards and retain the history especially at this time when we have the Ministry of Culture. It is a heritage more valuable than gold left to the future generation.
