Saratan

Saratan

The story centers around the people of a small Kyrgiz village following the collapse of the Soviet Union and the independence that Kyrgyzstan gained then. Completely unexpectedly, the mechanisms of state centralisation ceased to function. The hero of the story is the Kyrgyzstan people, who have to bear the consequences until solutions for coping with the problems are found. Clearly, only humour and self-ridicule are capable of grasping and understanding the whole force of the sad images that everyday life has to offer. The humour this involves is beyond laughter, because it arises from the absurdity of the situation. (Ernest Abdyjaparov)
