Schizo directed by Guka Omarova
Miss Talibonita and her Po-Co students are watching this beautiful film by Omarova. Co-written by Sergei Bodorov, its a wonderful follow up to the trip to see Mongol. The soundtrack is similar to Mongol. The best reason for showing this 2004 film is to break the romanticism for the harsh yet beautiful Central Asian steppes. The landscape in this film is littered by incomplete architectural projects by the Soviet Union. Lots to say about this... stay tuned! The lovely students said that this film was their favorite in a list of wonderful films screened in class. Especially after watching Mongol.
