Centring Kyrgyz women’s voices, Djamilia traces the influence of Chinghiz Aitmatov’s 1958 novel of the same title, whose protagonist broke societal norms for female conduct, inspiring generations of women to follow their own desires and ambitions. Exquisitely shot on Super 8, the film is composed of portraits of women of all ages in intimate settings—around kitchen tables, in gardens, in parks, and across diverse Kyrgyz landscapes—each reflecting on traumas resulting from the practices of child marriage and bride kidnapping. Despite recent criminalization, these practices remain common, with nearly a third of Kyrgyz girls and women being forced into marriage against their will. The film transports us to a region rarely represented in the media, and shares these women’s experiences of selfhood and identity. Djamilia invites women to reflect on their lives, their roles in society, and their expectations for change.*** Aminatou Echard will be in attendance.
