Land of Pure-Documentary film

A documentary film by: Peter Mallamo

In the Northern Areas of Pakistan, amid the rugged Karakoram Mountains, lies a relatively isolated region called Baltistan. The Balti people have struggled in this beautiful and harsh environment, but because men were able to find work as porters to assist mountaineering expeditions, many families enjoyed a meager income to supplement their subsistence lifestyle. Then the terrorist attacks of 9-11 and the subsequent “war on terror” all but halted tourism in the area. This film is a journey into the lives of the Balti people and illustrates how events that occur in one place can have a drastic impact on those living a world away.
