Documentary - 56 Minutes (USA)
“OSIMI” chronicles the life of a man called the “Nelson Mandela” of Central Asia. With our world in turmoil through cultural and philosophical differences, the story of one man - in a country most could not locate on a map - changes the paradigm of how to create peace. Narrated by Ali MacGraw and filmed in Tajikistan, India, France, Russia, Spain and throughout the U.S., through Muhammad Osimi we witness the power of art, education, and science. Using culture - language, music, poetry, and literature - as a tool to connect people even during a bloody civil war, his work created a meeting point for everyone from every side to help heal and change his country. The concepts that he lived for, fought for, and ultimately for which he died, can serve us all and continue to grow through his family, friends, and students.
