Synopsis

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.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
