Stars Caravan

I watched a movie called “stars caravan” today.  It was a documentary about travelling propaganda film projectorists.   Though it was only an hour, it provided a realistic look into post communism Kyrgyzstan(slightly after declaration of their independence).  Rundown cinemas,  suffering economy and unknown future of their country was intermingled with the epic story of kyrgyz hero Manas.  Some Kyrgyz traditions such as horseback wrestling and eagle hunting were shown.   Also revival of Islam and islamic life of the Kyrgyz were reflected in the movie.  It was short, sweet and realistic definetely a must see for someone who is interrested in Central Asia.   I wish there were nmore films available 😉
