Tajikistan - the roof of the world festival

Last year, we (= the paleyfamily = Mareile, our son iluka and myself) spent a few months in Tajikistan- you can see it here. We had a couple of projects planned but most of all, we wanted to spend some time to get to know Tajikistan better - allowing us to complete the picture of this region, having spend so much time in the neighboring countries. We were based in Khorog, at the heart of the Gorno-Badakhshan region. One of the project that we did, is producing a short movie to promote the "Roof of the World" festival. Mareile worked on the design part of the promotion of the festival itself as well as the editing of the short movie. I ran around taking pictures and filming. During the production part, we offered multimedia workshop to various Pamiri Tajiks enthusiasts... This is part of the "capacity building" that must take place while working for NGO (in that case, our client was the Aga Khan Foundation).
Here is the resulting video:
