A first...a short film from Khastakstan.

That's the beauty of film...windows into the wilderness.

This is the wilderness, punctuated by the railway...where 2 boys together try to escape their routine by going to the cinema...

It's a lovely film from a place and time that is not as alien as you might expect...we are, fundamentally, all the same. What a message!


Watch...

The(ir) Blurb...

One hot summer afternoon, two boys try to earn the cash for a movie in this beautiful evocation of the landscape of childhood.

Due to the massive amounts of spam we receive, the comments section is curated...so, no spam, no swearing, nothing unrelated to the film...they just won't be published! Time is precious, let's not waste it!
