Genghis Khan Conquers the Moon // 17mins // USA // 2015 // Australian Premiere
Genghis Khan Conquers the Moon is a short science fiction fable about an anti-hero on a spiritual quest, starring legendary Asian American actors Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa & James Hong.
In Genghis Khan’s last days, an encounter with a Wizard sends him to the Moon. Just as the Medieval anti-hero thinks he’s made his greatest conquest, he finds himself on a spiritual quest, realizing the absurd clash between one man’s need and the silence of the Universe.
