The Amazing Art of Bread Baking in Tajikistan

In Tajikistan, bread is still baked in a beautiful, traditional way at Shamsullo Dustov’s house in Kumsangir—just 30 miles from the Afghan border. Much of the surrounding land is nonarable, so the homemade bread makes up a large part of peoples’ average daily caloric intake. Watch the process unfold in John Wendle's short piece.

The Short Film Showcase spotlights exceptional short videos created by filmmakers from around the web and selected by National Geographic editors. We look for work that affirms National Geographic's mission of inspiring people to care about the planet. The filmmakers created the content presented, and the opinions expressed are their own, not those of the National Geographic Society. Know of a great short film that should be part of our Showcase?
