Vue sur Terre


Scott Engstrom is a life long dedicated breeder of Appaloosa horses – a hardy North American breed known for its colourful spotted pattern. Scott has long believed that the true source of the North American Appaloosa horse was Asia and not Europe as the history books would have you believe. Then one night watching her TV, she saw a horse that looked like an Appaloosa in Kyrgyzstan. She contacted the producer of the show, Conor Woodman, and convinced him to return with her to Kyrgyzstan to find that horse and prove that Asia was the source of the True Appaloosa. But in Kyrgyzstan they discover that Soviet occupation has all but destroyed the indigenous horses like the one Scott saw on TV. Their only option is to go in search of a lost valley, long considered inaccessible. Until now.


KIRGHIZISTAN : LA ROUTE DE L'AME NOMADE
En août 1991, quelques mois avant la chute de l'URSS, le Kirghizistan devient indépendant. L'Etat est encore jeune. La culture kirghize et son art de vivre sont pourtant séculaires. Et plus de cent vingt ans de domination russe n'ont pas réussi à faire disparaître les traditions de la vie nomade. Les montagnes, desservies par la Pamir Highway, sont les territoires où se retrouve encore la vie ancestrale kirghize. Dresseur d'aigles, berger, ancien dirigeant de kolkhoze ou encore chaman, les rencontres qui jalonnent cette route font découvrir les spécificités de cette culture ainsi que les vestiges de l'ère soviétique.


AROUND THE WORLD IN 80 TRADES
With £25,000 in his pocket from the sale of his flat, Conor Woodman travels across four continents, trading in all kinds of products with the aim of doubling his money.
Conor starts the first leg of his journey in Sudan where he hopes to buy camels and take them up one of the world's oldest trade routes along the Nile to Egypt.
Despite his City knowledge, he soon discovers that international trade is a lot harder on the ground - as he's given a hostile reception by the camel traders.
Thinking perhaps it's time he invested in a more familiar commodity, Conor purchases two tonnes of Zambian coffee. It's a far cry from the coffee shops of the Square Mile, but Conor's sure he can make a decent profit on the South African market.


Christophe Cousin rejoint le Kirghizstan, carrefour légendaire sur les routes de la soie. Ce pays de hautes montagnes et de plateaux herbeux est le berceau des tribus nomades qui ont su conserver leur esprit nomade malgré l'épreuve du temps et de la modernité.
