37 Uses for a Dead Sheep

Synopsis
Ben Hopkins’ documentary 37 USES FOR A DEAD SHEEP provides a glimpse at the lifestyles, mores, and background of the Pamir Kirghiz, a nomadic tribe from the central Asia. Documentarist Hopkins teams up with Ekber Kutlu, a Kirghiz scholar and artist, and travels inside of the Kirghiz, for one of the first cinematic glimpses of this cultural unit. Within the film, Hopkins intercuts newly shot on-location documentary footage with dramatic reconstructions of events from the tribe’s past (filmed in disparate styles), to provide a window into the Kirghiz experience over the course of time.
