The Destruction of Old Town Kashgar In HD

This documentary beautifully, dramatically, and perfectly captures my fascination with the Uyghur people, the city of Kashgar, and the Karakoram Highway.

Traditional, dangerous, dirt homes are replaced by modern, equally dangerous, styrofoam housing projects. The film includes an interview with the most helpful and well-intentioned Han government official ever.
