2016 - Russie/Tadjikistan/France - Couleur - 66'

Abdul, who hails from Tajikistan, has come to Moscow to send some money to his family back home in his native village, lost in the Pamir mountains. But Abdul is above all a singer. He sings the traditional songs of Pamir and through them tells the sometimes difficult episodes of his life in Moscow. A poetic ballad by a contemporary Ulysses. Work in progress
