Behind the Lens of 'Cry from the Mountains': A Q&A with the Director

Last May, record temperatures provoked a glacial lake outburst flood (GLOF) in northern Pakistan, sweeping away bridges and villages in the valley below the Shishper glacier. Higher up the mountains, the semi-nomadic Wakhi were leading their yaks to summer pastures. Their traditional lifestyle has been heavily impacted by climate change. Season 2, Episode 9 of Voices from the Roof of the World, entitled “Cry from the Mountains” explores GLOFs and their effects in northern Pakistan.
