Song From Southern Seas
Ivan is Russian, his neighbor Assan is Kazakh. They live in a small village in Kazakhstan. When Ivan’s wife gets pregnant and gives birth to a brown boy, he suspects that she has been cheating on him with Assan. Half a year later, Assan’s wife gives birth to a ginger boy. Whom betrayed whom? A conflict is sparked that won’t fully rest for 15 years. Marat Sulu’s script goes deep under the surface of a Russian – Kazakh family story – profoundly, emotionally and disrespectfully.
“This compact work, energized by the yin and yang of assorted conflicts (ethnic, generational, familial), focuses chiefly on the love-hate relationship between indigenous Kazakhs and Russian immigrants who have lived side by side for decades. Creative distributors could squeeze a cult/art movie out of it: its concerns are universal. The film is a natural for film festivals, with possible interest in ancillary riding the crest of a small but significant theatrical wave.” – review by Howard Feinstein of ScreenDaily.com
