Motor! – Snippets of Uzbek Film Landscape

Documentary, 30min, 2010

Motor – the last word you hear before the camera begins capturing images … The documentary concentrates on what is happening besides the filmic room. This being beside the film is becoming the center of the film. It accompagnies the works of the film team around the director Nazim Abbasov as well as the journalist Seed Yanyshev and the director of a film museum, Oleg Karpov. Uzbekistan is an independent republic since 1991. The practical realization of the constitution is criticized heavily for the deficiency of democracy. However people find their way to scoop the few options. The film team who’s working together for the third time already expresses quite well that film is understood and felt all over the world.
