ALTAÏR FILM-CONFERENCE: THE SILK ROAD
"In the footsteps of Marco Polo
A FILM DIRECTED AND PRESENTED BY PATRICK MATHÉ

Tuesday 23 November at 2.30 pm

The Chinese portion of the Silk Road started from Chang'an and then, through a string of oases and strongholds, reached the Jade Gate which, for the Chinese, marked the end of the civilized world. It owes its name to the most precious of goods that passed through on this trade route: silk.

In the footsteps of Marco Polo, set off to discover the oases of the Silk Road with their enchanting names. Who hasn't dreamed of wandering through the great bazaar of Kashgar where Uighurs, Kirghiz, Tajiks and Kazakhs meet? Who has not dreamed of contemplating its imposing earthen walls which, for centuries, sheltered the greatest treasures of Central Asia? More than 2000 years ago, the Steppe Empire belonged to a multitude of Turkic tribes. In the 2nd century B.C., in order to repel them, a Chinese emissary was sent to the west of the Taklamakan desert and beyond the Pamir range to seal an alliance with a distant tribe, hereditary enemy of the Turks. Historically, this journey is at the origin of the Silk Road, whose great history is recounted in this film.
