Beshkempir

This award winning release proved to be a catalyst for Kyrgyz cinema’s development. The second part of an autobiographical series on the director’s own life, Beshkempir tells the tale of tumultuous teen years. The protagonist is laden with responsibility, and is often left contending with his father’s alcoholism. The revelation that he is adopted shakes the parameters of his life, and has consequences for the community.
