"Who is Next?": Investigative documentary as an awareness-raising tool. Masterclass with Nurzhamal Karamoldoeva (AUCA) on March 7, 2023

February 28, 2023

The masterclass will focus on the making of documentary Who is Next? (directors Nurzhamal Karamoldoeva and Sultan Usuvaliev, produced by Paradigma N studio, Kyrgyzstan), which investigates the tragic case of Aizada Kanatbekova, kidnapped by a group of men for a forced marriage in April 2021 in Bishkek. The documentary is a detailed analysis of the criminal case that utilizes both analytical (through true crime documentary genre) and emotional (family drama) aspects of the social phenomenon of ala kachuu (so called “bride kidnapping”). One of the important themes of the film is the negligence case of the police officers involved in the investigation of the case initiated in April 2021. The film is an attempt to answer the question "Who is Next?" posed by viewers. The masterclass will focus on the various aspects of research and filmmaking process.
