Life in Hunza

This silent educational film (1937) shows rural life in the mountainous valley near Gilgit - now in the Northern Areas of Pakistan. There is footage of fertility rites performed by the Mir and scenes of the daily life of the locals; this includes the production of apricot wine which is lovingly called 'Hunza water'. (Mansur Quraishi)
