The Devil's Pass

La passe du diable

France, 1959


Afghanistan. A young boy gets anxious to go to an annual competition of horseback riders that requires both equestrian and fighting skills. The riders face off in a closed ring, a kind of sport that would have had its origins centuries earlier in the nomadic peoples of this region and Central Asia.
