From 28th October to 1st November 2019, the Kazakhstan Film Week is being held in London. While once our great storytellers delighted their audiences with epics told through poems and songs, they now turn to film.

Throughout the week, one of London’s most iconic cinemas will be holding screenings of some of the greatest Kazakh films released in recent years, including Ayka, Amanat, Returnee, The Old Man, and The Road to Mother.

Many of these films represent a key part of Kazakh culture; a legacy of storytelling brought to life through modern retellings and celebrations of our history and past heroes. They are well-loved within Kazakhstan, the majority having been selected as the country’s entries for the Academy Awards, and the upcoming film week will allow international audiences to enjoy these remarkable journeys and tales of the Great Steppe.

Friday, 1st November:

18:00 - Screening of Ayka by Sergey Dvortsevoy
