Le Pont du trieur, Feature film, 2000.
Le Pont du trieur (The Sorter’s Bridge), Feature film released in 2000. Starring Thibault de Montalembert, Ogonozar Aknazarov and Camille Japy.
On the rooftops of Khorog, Pamir’s capital and the highest part of Tajikistan, bordering Afghanistan and China, television antennas are often makeshift… Le Pont du trieur questions the mythical Pamir – “this country of which we have no image”.
Neither documentary nor fiction, this film is not based on investigation but on wander: from a Parisian radio studio where a Pamiri gentleman comes to talk about his country, to the hypothetical guardian of one of the world’s highest passes, via a new school year beginning in an unnamed village, or following a sidecar looking like Noah's ark.
