herders calling video


Herder’s Calling focuses on one jailoo: where Akim Aliev Datka’s family has come for generations. The video follows the lives of the families living there, from requisite duties such as tending the herd, to more socially-oriented aspects such as entertaining neighbours and engaging in traditions of song and sport. And at times, the film simply captures the quiet existence of life in this expansive and isolated part of the world.
