TREASURE-PHOTO1Looking for the family treasure, formerly hidden by her great-grandfather in his garden under a cherry tree, Sholpan, 6, finds — instead of diamonds — a magic mirror in which the nostalgia of the distant past and the mysterious future unite in a magnificent present. Set to the music of a national Kazakh shamanic instrument, the kobyz.
