TEAM 

In the fall of 2016, Co-Director and cinematographer Trevor Wallace travelled with Gino Caspari to far Western China to begin their search for Scythian tombs. They located over 100 graves in the militarized border zones near Russia and Kazakhstan. They followed the trail of stolen grave goods, escaped the military border guards, and spent time in traditional Kazakh villages wrestling and riding horses.
