DESCRIPTION

The River (Kazakh: Ózen) is a drama film, directed by Emir Baigazin and released in 2018. Amidst a parched landscape in Kazakhstan lives a family. Five sons, their mother, and their strict father. They are isolated from the modern world. A nearby river provides a getaway where they can swim and frolic, and be regular kids, away from the piercing gaze of their father. What will happen when a long-haired boy in urban clothes arrives, riding a hoverboard and carrying an iPad? An intriguing portrait of the inner struggle of youngsters living under the strict watch of their controlling father.
