The story is set in Chahar Deh, a mountain village located in the north of Afghanistan, which most of us haven’t even heard of. We witness Afghan traditions through the lives of 60-year-old Zavar and his 9-year-old nephew Razak at this mountain village situated on the heights of Hindu Kush Mountain Range. Like many Afghan children, Razak has lost his father in the civil war. His uncle Zavar is his greatest support. Known for his passion for partridges and as an avid hunter in the village, Zavar teaches his young nephew Razak how to hunt and care for partridges in order to help him take his early steps towards manhood.
In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
