Logline: Samarkand is a near-muthical city located in modern Uzbekistan. While it is recognised in Europe and Asia as an epitome of Orientalist dream, it is currently undergoing a rapid change towards a touristy ‘sight’. Old mosques are heavy-handedly restored, churches turn into venues for pseudo-artistic celebrations, houses are taken down , friends and family members move or die… what will remain of the Orientalist fairy tale when it will have been told?
