Summary:
Full film record shot in north central Afghanistan in a mountain village near Mazar. Shots include: scenes in the village marketplace; a large circular gathering of men by the river to witness and participate in village wrestling matches; individual wrestling matches: these begin with contestants circling inside the enclosed gathering, shaking hands, and then sparring for a tie-up; wrestlers grab each others clothing much in the fashion of judo; the objective is apparently to throw one's opponent to his back in a clean move. When this occurs a supporter rushes out and hoists the victorious competitor upon this back, running with him around the circle. Scenes of six or seven matches and also scenes of festivities featuring dance by man dressed in woman's garb; music played on string harp-like instrument; socializing among men and boys
