Date: Friday, 15 November 2019 17:00 - 19:30

Venue: Kinograph, 227 avenue de la couronne, 1050 Ixelles

In the framework of the project “SEnECA – Strengthening and Energizing EU-Central Asia Relations”, TEPSA is honoured to invite you to the screening of the film "The Song of the Tree".

The film “The Song of the Tree”, set in the XVIII century, portrays the Kyrgyz cultural traditions and their clashes with modern life and society.

The film talks about the life and tragedy of a Kyrgyz village, focusing on a simple young guy Esen who falls in love with Begimai, the daughter of a local lord. The dishonest tricks of his rival force Esen to take revenge. His anger results in a tragedy – destruction of a sacred totem tree. Hard trials are coming for everyone. Being expelled from his native village, he takes Begimai with him, but is overtaken and beaten almost to death. Esen is destined to find himself and his fate in order to reunite his people.

The film will be screened in V.O with English subtitles and is free of charge. It will be followed by a discussion with Taalaybek Dayirbekov, main sponsor of the film, and a UNESCO Representative. The discussion will be moderated by TEPSA Executive Director Mariam Khotenashvili.
