Kyrgyzstan, France, Germany, Nederland, Japan / 2017 / 89 min. / Director: Aktan ARYM KUBAT
In a village on a beautiful prairie in Kyrgyzstan, a quiet man lives modestly with his wife and son, and is called “centaur” by the other villagers. He also harbors a secret: he steals horses at night and sets them free, out of a belief in an ancient Kyrgyz legend. One day, a powerful figure whose horse is stolen sets a trap to catch the thief... The latest work from one of Kyrgyzstan’s foremost filmmakers, Aktan ARYM KUBAT, gently questions the state of modern society, in which cultural identity is being lost. As with the film he is best known for, “The Light Thief” (2010), the director also plays the lead role. Received its world premiere in the Berlin International Film Festival’s Panorama section, and won the CICAE Art Cinema Award.
