A Garden in Shigar

A film by Mahera Omar (Pakistan/2010/18:30).

Nusrat, Khezran, Zakia, Asiya and Sajida, five young women from the scenic Shigar Valley in the mountainous northern areas of Pakistan, work as interns with the Aga Khan Cultural Service Pakistan (AKCSP). Their project is to landscape the Abruzzi secondary school’s garden in the village of Sainkhor, Shigar, Baltistan. Tahereh, who is from Los Angeles, California, teaches the women principles of design and landscaping. In learning these skills to transform a rubble strewn field into a one-of-a-kind teaching garden, these women sow the seeds for their own transformation.
