A story of re-migration in politically volatile times. We are tracing the path of an ethnically Kazakh family, who are returning to their homeland from the Afghan province of Kundus. Since Kazakh independence in 1991, this has become possible. The family’s grandfather fled the Stalinist terror in the 1930s to Afghanistan. His son, Saparkul, fought as a Mujahideen in the Afghan-Soviet war. He and his wife have a daughter, who lost her voice in a traumatic situation, when she trod on a landmine. Now they have received their documents to re-migrate, and start on the long and arduous journey across the mountains to Kazakhstan. (Festival information)
