Editorial Reviews

In the early 1990s, the fall of the Soviet Union left Mongolia's economy in shambles and its people searching for a way to adjust to capitalism. Mongolian doctors and traditional healers found that the prevalence of a disorder known as "yadargaa" was increasing throughout the country. Word of this disorder made its way to a team of medical anthropologists, who traveled to Mongolia to study the people affected by this illness.

"The Wrestler's Second" follows Tsodol, a famous Mongolian Wrestling Coach (or Wrestler's Second), as he travels from the former Soviet controlled Mongolian capital back to the traditional nomadic life of Gobi Desert. There he searches for a cure to his "Yadargaa" and a sense of balance in a modern Mongolia.

"The Wrestler's Second: The Story of Mongolia's Struggle with Yadargaa" was Robert Koenig directorial debut and was originally produced by Robert Koenig and Brandon Kohrt in 1999. The piece was produced as an educational component in conjunction with academic research and publications on the mysterious disorder known to Mongolians as "Yadargaa". Brandon Kohrt, the co-writer and co-producer of "The Wrestler's Second", has presented this program along side lectures regarding his anthropological work in Mongolia.

"The Wrestler's Second: The Story of Mongolia's Struggle with Yadargaa". It is in English and Mongolian with English subtitles. It was shot on digital video and has a run time of 28 minutes.

Format: DVD
Nicely made film set in Mongolia, a little known place where the National sport is wrestling. The story is interesting and it has some funny moments so its not your usual dry anthropological film that will make you want to claw your eyes out after 10 minutes.

Kudos to the filmmaker who made the story entertaining as well as educational.
