Film Screening & Discussion. "BATU: Historical Detective"
Please join the Harriman Institute for a screening of Rachid Nougmanov's documentary film, BATU: Historical Detective and a discussion with the director, Rachid Nougmanov, and Diane Wolff, author of Batu, Khan of the Golden Horde: The Mongol Khans Conquer Russia. Moderated by Mark Lipovetsky, Professor of Slavic Languages. This event is part of our Contemporary Culture Series.

Chinggis Khan's favorite grandson, Batu investigates the mystery of his father's death. Uncovering a conspiracy in his own family, he creates a powerful empire to administer justice against the culprits. For the first time in history, 26 leading researchers from Asia, Europe and America have come together as witnesses in a murder case that took place eight centuries ago. The question remains: Who is Batu? A war criminal, a minion of fate, or a justice maker?
