The Pamir Kirghiz are a tribe of some 2,000 people from the Pamir region of Central Afghanistan. For the last 27 years they have lived in exile in Eastern Turkey. In 2005 an Anglo-Turkish film crew arrives in their village to work with the tribe to tell their story. In a series of scenes divided into “chapters”, we see revealing interviews with the Kirghiz, see exciting and entertaining reconstructions shot in a variety of different cinematic styles, and comic scenes of the interaction between the film crew and the community. This film is part historical document, part ethnographical description of a unique people, part portrait of the conflict between individual and globalized culture, and part comedy about the process of film-making.

Director: Ben Hopkins
