The presentations were informative, interesting, varied and short. The features of the creative style of Lily Turusbekova, her high level of humanity and culture were noted. Rakiya Shershenova spoke about the respect with which she was treated at the studio from the very beginning of her creative career. Gulbara Tolomusheva recalled how, while working on the full-length film Koshoy-Tash, the director and editor – Gulbara’s mother – called up every day at 8 am to discuss in detail the work plan for the current day
CUTTING THE RIBBON
At the entrance we installed a banner with drawings by Guzel Aitmatova. A close-up on the banner reproduced the image of Lilya Turusbekova at Moviola, a device for editing and editing film frames.
In addition, “at a distance” is the childish image of Lily Turusbekova with her father, the famous poet Jusup Turusbekov, who died at the front when she was only 8 years old.
Guests were happy to take pictures against the background of the banner
The ribbon was cut by the famous operator Manasbek Musaev, Arsen Egizov, Tyrgoot Chortonbaev.
VIEWING THE EXPOSITION
The design and layout of the exposition was made by Asel Daniyarova (author of this publication), daughter of Lily Turusbekova. And who, if not us – the children – to know the life of our mother…
The exposition consists of three parts: along the perimeter of the hall – photographs of Lilya Turusbekova and her close circle are presented in chronological order, with comments in Kyrgyz and Russian. On the easels are photographs of Lilya Turusbekova at work, in the process of shooting the film and subsequent work on the frames, together with members of the film crew, editors. Frames from the films are presented on ten canvases stylized as a film. This technique was used earlier at exhibitions dedicated to Tolomush Okeev and Gennady Bazarov.
The selection of film frames was made by Gyuzel Aitmatova, daughter of Lily Turusbekova, along with Vladimir Schwartz, husband of Asel and son-in-law of Lily Turusbekova. It was not an easy job, there are many films, many interesting shots, but I had to choose, for this I had to watch films for hours. To our joy, there was plenty to choose from, the film studio Kyrgyzfilm digitized most of the films. The archival department with Joldosh Akhmataliev managed to do this work by the anniversary. Snapshots after the selection were made by Orken Rysbay, an employee of the Kyrgyzfilm film studio.
The oldest photograph dates back to 1914, which depicts tayata (Moldakhmat, grandson of Baitik-batyr) and tayena Lily Turusbekova (Azhar), in the year when her mother, Umu-Kulsun Moldakhmatova, was born. Photographs of the poet and playwright Jusup Turusbekov with his pen collection are presented. There are many people who remained in the history of Kyrgyzstan, including film history, in Lilya’s childhood photographs, for example, Mar Bayjiev, Marles Turatbekov, Salima Bekmuratova and others. Lilya Turusbekova signed photographs from childhood, indicating the date, events and names of people. Thanks to this, we will keep her classmates and teachers from school number 28 busy. These notes on the back of the photo are reproduced in the exposition.
According to our impressions, the audience received the exhibition warmly with great interest. We received many indifferent comments. It is especially pleasant that the participants of the event asked interesting questions. I would like to draw your attention to the fact that the exhibition will last until June 11.
