A WINTER WITH THE MOUNTAIN NOMADS
Another face of Afghanistan
There is a valley in Afghanistan that has never seen war, a strip of land that unfolds amid high mountains. Here, the last remaining Kyrgyz nomads live isolated,4,000 meters altitude.
For 2 winter months, a Western woman stayed in their camps. She arrives there with great expectations but these are quickly stifled. As time goes by, her bemusement is replaced by the ability to observe her hosts without preconceptions.
This film is her discreet glimpse into an unfamiliar and harsh world.
