The Kyrgyz Of Jerge-Tal (Part 5)

In the final video from Janyl Jusupjan's series of short films about the lives of ethnic Kyrgyz in the town of Jerge-Tal in northern Tajikistan, we meet Gulnaz, who decided to leave and try her luck in Kyrgyzstan. She now lives in a rented house with her three sons while her husband has gone to find construction work in Russia. She speaks of the reasons she left Tajikistan, though her life so far in Kyrgyzstan has not proven to be much better.
