Living and making a film in Ulaanbaatar, one of the most polluted city in the world ... Yes, it's hard to breath and I finally start to wear a mask.... I wish Jackie could have one too. .
So you may wonder what is it to live in a polluted city, concretely ? The pollution sneaks everywhere, to your clothes, to your hair, you start coughing and throwing yellow stuff from your mouth when you wake up in the morning. Jackie smell the pollution, I smell the pollution. The smell seems like a heavy barbecue party going on non stop. I'm worried about the new generation growing up here, the babies or very young kids like the three years old daughter of Zoro. With the situation of heavy pollution in Europe we would have the extreme red signal with recommendation to stay at home. .
That's a side of Mongolia who don't fit with the beauty of nomads living in harmony with nature. However it's connected. Because of hard winter, thousand of nomads moved to the city the last decade. Hundred of thousand of them. Ulaanbaatar was not build to received that many people so they started to live around the city area, called the ger district. Every night is hundred of thousand families burning coal to stay warm. That's what's mean pollution, it's a life reality. .
