37 Uses for a Dead Sheep is a documentary that brings to light in a quite entertaining and shallow fashion the seriously-touching migration story of the Kirghiz tribe of the Pamir region, one of many that never made the news. It uses reenactment as a way to engage the Kirghiz community and makes them participate in the shooting of a historical flick that tells their story of fighting the Russians while wandering from the Pamir, to China, to Pakistan and finally to their current home of eastern Turkey. Longing for their lost home, the elderly have fun in counting all the byproducts they could once squeeze out from a dead sheep.
