Documentary Films in Kazakhstan

Posted by:  Len

We had a wonderful experience in September screening and discussing six films from the U.S. State Department’s Documentary Showcase in Almaty and Shymkent, Kazakhstan.  Film expert and educator Diane Carson and director (Kids with Cameras) Alex Rotaru led the discussions and contributed an immense amount of knowledge about the history of film and the practical aspects of making a documentary.  Their expertise, energy and enthusiasm were amazing.

We learned a lot from Diane and Alex and thank them for their interest in explaining documentary films to new audiences, as well as for their interest in Threads!
