Canada, Tajikistan / 2016 / 20' / European premiere


After the collapse of the Soviet Union, Tajikistan was embroiled in a long and devastating civil war. Raïmberdi is a botanist who lost everything following the war and moved to the stark Pamir Mountains with his family, constructing a small self-sufficient shelter. In his free time he catalogues rare species of plants in his beautiful handwriting.
