About Oxus Films
Oxus Films was created out of a passion for sharing ideas across cultural boundaries, making what may initially appear foreign a bit more familiar. Through wonderful human stories we may recognize that the seemingly different people in the films are just ourselves, but in different circumstances. Oxus Films produces independent films but also offers writing, filming, editing and photography services for projects with partners in government, NGO and commercial sectors."Oxus Films offers a window into the lands of the ancient Oxus River. The Oxus is also known as the Pyanj River or the Amu Darya on more recent maps.
We love Central Asia. We have produced four documentary films in the region: Herders' Calling (2004) in the Kyrgyz Republic; Falak, Song of the Soul (2005) in Tajikistan; The Sweetest Embrace: Return to Afghanistan (2008) in Afghanistan; and Buzkashi! (2012) in Tajikistan. It's just that kind of compelling place.
