What sounds like a comedy is actually an unusual and surprisingly entertaining documentary about a Central Asian tribe called the Pamir Kirghiz. With its semi-nomadic members having lived in exile for decades in Turkey, it's a story of remarkable survival in the face of persecution and hardship. Colourful talking-head interviews combine with vignettes featuring the Kirghiz themselves playfully re-enacting their history in silent movie style; while interwoven 'making of' footage shows the frequently amusing impact the crew had on their subjects.
E means that the film's distributor believes the film to be 'exempt' from a BBFC age rating. E certificate films are often designed to inform, educate or instruct.
