ARTE TV: Happiness of the Abkhazian Shepherd

ARTE: LE BONHEUR DU BERGER ABKHAZE (French) 

Despite a sometimes turbulent history, including the war of independence against Georgia, the breakaway republic of Abkhazia has preserved its traditions. In the village of Arasadzykh, time seems to have stood still. We follow the life of an Abkhazian family: life on the farm, traditional Orthodox festivals and the preparation for the seasonal migration when the men of the village go up with their herds to the high peaks of the Caucasus.
