Dir. Abdukadir Upur and Dilmurat Tohti (2015)

Two rural Uyghur craftsmen work on their traditional handcrafts before the repression of their culture by the Chinese government deepens.The film, made by two young Uyghur filmmakers while still at university, gives a window into centuries-old material culture, as well as a glimpse of the bazaar where these goods were once sold, before government repression caused the bazaars and its craftspeople to disappear.

Speakers: Darren Byler, University of British Columbia, in conversation with David Dettman, Center for East Asian Studies, with new subtitles by Dr. Byler & Qanat Wolf.
