Casa Asia focuses once again on bringing some of the most recent titles of Central Asian film to the public. These films are still unknown by most of the public. This series discovers the narratives of Tajikistan, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, through which we experience worlds we would not get to know any other way.
It should be noted that in the last edition of the Asian Film Festival Barcelona (November 2017), the Best Photography Award was awarded to Districts in the Panorama Section, and the Cathay Pacific Award for Best Director went to Zhapar Uulu and Baky Mukul for A Father’s Will.
