We're looking for a talented filmmaker to join the Women On A Mission Mongolian Expedition at the end of May 2018. The purpose of the trip is to raise $100,000 for Women for Women International. A UK based charity that provides female survivors of war and conflict with the tools and resources to move from crisis and poverty to stability and self-sufficiency.

For 10 days you will join a 13-strong all female team trekking on horseback across the Mongolian mountain ranges to spend time and live amongst the famed Eagle Hunters. 

This is an unpaid opportunity, however all travel and accommodation expenses will be covered, including food and excursions. In exchange you will document the entire trip on behalf of She Went Wild and our partners and create a 10 - 15 minute short film. It will document the dramatic scenery of the region, the personal trials and tribulations of the women involved and the core values of both WOAM & SWW; women supporting women.

You will require your own professional grade equipment and be physically fit.

To apply, please email a covering letter and links to at least two pieces of work to content@shewentwild.com

 

"For this next expedition to Mongolia, WOAM’s ninth to date, the women will begin their voyage in the country’s capital, Ulaanbaatar, and fly to Ulgii the largest city of the westernmost Bayan-Olgiy province of Mongolia, where they will take part in an incredibly unique nomadic experience. The Kazakhs living in this area are the largest national minority and practice Sunni Islam. The Muslim influence is widespread, from street signs to clothes and food, which gives the town its diverse atmosphere. The team will stay in ger camps with local nomadic families, set against the vast landscapes of this remote area of Mongolia, which lies close to the border of Russia and Kazakhstan. Still untouched by mass tourism and deeply steeped in its cultural roots and traditions, the local people of the region hunt for food and fur with golden eagles. During their stay there, the WOAM team will learn about the art of hunting with these majestic birds, a thrilling, ancient practice that few people get a chance to experience."
