Towards Nomadic Land

Towards Nomadic Land takes us to Kyrgyzstan, to meet five young adults in their twenties who embark on a tumultuous adventure of backcountry skiing and local culture. Planning their trip from A to Z, they quickly realize that despite all the preparations made beforehand, one cannot foresee the unforeseen.

Two serious accidents force them to drastically change their plans and to arm themselves with resilience in order to continue their journey. Their mistakes influence how they think about their true aspirations and the importance of getting back to the basics.

Through words and striking images, we discover the force and dignity of the mountain, whose voice guides us with gentleness and enthrallment. At times critical, at times spiritual, it will make us dive into the heart of its immenseness and its devastating power while inviting us into the richness of the semi-nomadic culture of Kyrgyzstan, which inspires us to travel differently.
