'Bridging the Divide' follows an anthropologist and her Tajik host father, Shirinbek, on a journey across the border into Afghanistan. This is the first time that Shirinbek has visited this Afghan village, one that he can see from his house in Tajikistan. As Shirinbek explores the place, he meets with relatives he knew about but had never previously met. In following Shirinbek's journey, 'Bridging the Divide' explores how human beings can be bridges, building connections based on a shared humanity without dissolving certain social and political differences that continue to be maintained.
