Our project is a short documentary film about the art of Shyrdak making. We traveled to Kyrgyzstan to interview the female artisans who make them about the history of the rugs, the process of making them, and the culture of Kyrgyzstan. We hope to provide exposure to and help to revive this amazing art. As well as strengthen the ties that already exist between the small mountain towns of Kyrgyzstan and Jackson.

Where is Kyrgyzstan?
I had an idea of the general area, but not an exact location before I found the Shyrdak rugs. Could you place it on the map before seeing this image?
