Pictures from the Second Screening in Tajikistan - Buni Village

Tajikistan Screening No. 2: Aug 23
Location: Buni village, Gorno-Badakhshan, Tajikistan

Setting up at the community centre (above).

We replaced my charger-less laptop for Vadim's laptop.

Question and Answer Session.
One question that came up a few times: why didn't we show more of Tajikistan in the film?
My Answer: We would have loved to, and I think there should be a full documentary on the Tajik jamat in itself, but there is limited space in a film. We had to be selective. A good film is NOT an essay - we hope this film encourages and inspires people to do their own research in books, on the Internet, etc. We merely were trying to give a summary of a 1400-year old story - and to do it within an hour.
