This short 10-minute film by Lilya Turursbekova tells us about a unique master – manufacturer of traditional Kyrgyz saddles Jylkychy Sharshembiev. Our people are representatives of a nomadic civilization, an integral part of which is horse riding.
Life in the saddle is an opportunity to cover distances and always be in touch with nature and the world around you, it is also a feeling of freedom. And how important it is for rider and horse to exist in harmony. A true craftsman – a saddlemaker – creates this harmony of beauty and convenience!
In the laconic film essay about the master there are no comments from the author, and the voice-over tells the story from the point of view of the hero of the film. We listen to him and watch the cutting of wood, the birth of a design, the embossing of leather, and the image of an intelligent, thoughtful, creative person, creator and artist appears before us!
It’s great that the Kyrgyzfilm film studio continues to digitize our documentary film heritage!
The film is in Kyrgyz language without subtitles, however, in our opinion, it will be understandable to those who do not know the Kyrgyz language.
