CGiii Comment

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!

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.
