We will build our own Hollywood, Kyrgyz filmmaker says

“We will build our own Hollywood in Kyrgyzstan,” Ernst Abdyjaparov a popular Kyrgyz filmmaker told reporters on Friday, presenting the movie festival to open in Bishkek November 15, 2008.

The program includes 10 one-reelers filmed by Kyrgyz students, as well as young professionals from Iran and Azerbaijan. “I invented a new teaching method based on scientology. I hope that next year my master-class courses will have up to 100 listeners. This year I had 32 students. This way we will build our own Hollywood in Kyrgyzstan in about 10 years,” the filmmaker said.
