Bulunkul

In the middle of the mountains of Tajikistan, villagers organize themselves to survive the winter while the yaks slowly descend from the peaks. In this austere setting, the daily struggle for sustenance overlaps with the wild beauty of nature, painting a portrait of a resilient community facing isolation and adversity.
