Kyrgyz W/ English subtitles
In the middle of the steppes of Kyrgyzstan an old foundation dating back to the Soviet era is gaining more and more importance in the nomads' daily life.
Nadine Boller, a documentary filmmaker and camerawoman born 1986 and raised in Switzerland, finished her Master studies in film science and English linguistics at the University of Lausanne beginning 2013. Shortly after, she attended an intensive full- time documentary film course at the MET Film School Berlin in order to acquire the necessary knowledge for realising her first project: a self-directed documentary about a nomad family in Kyrgyzstan. After 6 months of shooting and participating in the nomads’ everyday life she returned to Berlin to edit her footage. Three films emerged: Erkinai die Halbnomadin (2016), Impressions of Aiana (2015) and The Block (2015).
