Marat Sarulu

ALTYN KYRGHOL – Bruder Seidenstrasse

A railway line now cuts across the midst of the Kirghiz steppe where once the Silk Road ran. Four children, including their rather brash leader, set out from their native village in the mountains on a journey to the railway track. At the same time, a train makes its way across the steppe; the encounter with this train will indeed dramatically change the lives of at least two of these children. (Panorama Berlinale 2002)
