New Film: Prisoners of the Himalayas

Posted on the 30 March 2011 by Kungfujedi @Kungfujedi

A friend of mine sent me a link to this video, which is a teaser for a film scheduled for release in October of this year. The film is entitled Prisoners of the Himalaya, and it was shot in the Pamir Mountains of Afghanistan, where the Kyrgyz people live. They are unfortunately trapped by circumstances, that have them stuck in some of the highest mountains on Earth and unable to pass into Pakistan, China, or Tajikistan. All told, there are 1200 Kyrgyz in the region, and the once nomadic tribe, has to eke out a subsistence level living in one of the harshest environments on the planet.
This is definitely a film to keep your eyes on. It is beautifully, yet starkly, shot, and it promises to tell quite a tale. Find out more at TheRoofoftheWorld.com.
Thanks to Alan Curr for sharing this great video. Alan is headed to Afghanistan in a few months, and he knows I'm VERY jealous of that! ;)
