The Power Of Cinema In A Changing Land
The former Soviet Republic of Kyrgyzstan is a land of natural beauty and continuous cultural upheaval; however, one tradition of the old regime has survived. Before the breakup of the Soviet Union, the government dispatched cinema units to expose citizens to propaganda films. Appointed projectionists would travel through the land either by foot or on horseback to hold special screenings.
When Kyrgyzstan was granted its independence, its cinema program lost their funding and the people lost their beloved movies. The Stars' Caravan is the story of a lone projectionist, who has continued to deliver the wonder of cinema to his people.
