Didar is a poet, but he cannot live from his poetry. He is only able to write in the morning before going to work as a newspaper editor. With his coworkers, he usually discusses whether or not the national language is in danger of extinction, due to the English globalization. Omirbayev makes Didar read a book about the Kazakh poet Makhambet Otemisuly, which allows him to dangerously unite tradition and modernity.


Darezhan Omirbayev (Uyuk, 1958) firstly studied mathematics and then cinema. Since his debut with Kairat in 1992, he directed several films that have been awarded in international festivals.
