Ernest Abdyjaparov – Kyrgyzstan – 2005

CHF 16.90 / EUR 15.70

Discontentment reigns in a Kyrgyzian village: money is not flowing as expected, everyone is trying to arrange his own business, if necessary secretly, communism is still finding adherents and the rustler Taschmat is at work, pursued by the village police man Salamat. The villagers belief in better times is weak, as well as their belief in a fair God. Be it Allah or Jehova, they prefer devoting themselves to terrestrial joy. While some are managing to profit from the situation, others are getting nothing. When the rustler Taschmat is caught by the police man, the fabric of the community is put to the test and the village administrator tries to hold his village together. The tragic-comical stories deal with politics and religion, tradition and modernity, pride and honour a parable on the "good old days" and the confidence in the future.
