Filming the Anthropocene

Murghab

by Martin Saxer, Marlen Elders, Daler Kaziev, 2019 (in Tajikistan)

Germany | 81 minutes | English subtitles

Murghab, a city formerly well maintained by the Soviet Union, is now the scene of human resilience, of a population that struggles daily to live and survive in the ruins of socialism and in the very harsh environment of Tajikistan.

FIFEQ’s review

A magnificent collaborative ethnographic feature film, Murghab is a film about people, politics, climate, work, and hope. It is also a photographic masterpiece that insightfully illustrates the post-Soviet reality of a people and an environment.
