I was lucky to be on the premier of this movie in LA. Absolutely worth to be nominated for Best foreign movie for upcoming 87's Oscar. Director of Kurmandjan Datka is a man with vision, there is no doubt that this picture will get nominated and be awarded for best foreign movie in 2015. This movie is based on real story that happened centuries ago in Kyrgyzstan, country of nomad people that got settled in Central Asia. This movie helps to educate young generation of Kyrgyz people to get familiar with their history. Director, Sher-Niyaz contributed a lot to the country of Kyrgyz people where he developed a great platform in movie- making business, as it has grown tremendously in the past 5 years and brought up enormous attention of mass media from all over the world. The biggest movie project that ever occurred in history of Kyrgyzstan, people from all over the world bless this movie, critics are foreseeing good results and director is working really hard to push this movie into Oscar.
