Days of Kyrgyz cinema at Mir cinema passed

26 June 2017, Monday

On June 23 - 24 the Mir cinema was shrouded in a "Kyrgyz miracle" - this is what the cinematography of the Kyrgyz Republic is called. "The Kyrgyz miracle" appeared in the 70s of the last century thanks to the works of recognized masters of the Kyrgyz film classics - actors Muratbek Ryskulov, Bolot Beyshenaliyev, Tattybou Tursunbaev, Suimenkul Chokmorov, Zhurakhon Rakhmonov, directors Tolomush Okeyev, Gennady Bazarov, Bolot Shamshiev and Algimantis Vidugiris. The Fund for the Development of Cinematography together with the Kyrgyzfilm Film Studio of  T. Okeyev has  composed a film collection "Kyrgyz miracle", which included 10 films.

The Days of Kyrgyz cinema were held at the Mir cinema hall - the only film-show in Kazan to display national films - within the framework of the Days of the Kyrgyz Republic in the Republic of Tatarstan. The program includes the best national full-length and short films, which have become laureates of international film festivals.

The opening film was a historical film directed by Sadyk Sher-Niyaz "Kurmanzhan-datka", which became the best full-length feature film of the 11th Kazan International Muslim Film Festival.

Before the screening, the audience was welcomed  by  director Sadik Sher-Niyaz. By the way, he is one of the three leading film directors of our time. The second film director Nika Zholdosheva  and representatives of the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Tatarstan also took part in a creative meeting. The guests spoke about the dynamism of the cinematography of Kyrgyzstan. More than 50 films are shot annually in the republic. This is a big breakthrough, because during the Soviet era only three films per year were shot at the Kyrgyzfilm studios. In the difficult 90's, and in only seven years, they shot only one film, The Cloud. At present, many pictures have reached the cash register: "Bishkek, I love you", "Hummingbird", "How to marry Gu Jung Pe". The museum of Kyrgyz cinema and the national film award "Ak-Ilbirs" have been established.
