Felt, Feelings and Dreams


film by Andrea Odezynska

Since the Soviet Union collapsed, unemployment and alcoholism have ravaged the former Republic of Kyrgyzstan. "FELT, FEELINGS AND DREAMS" follows a small group of Kyrgyz women who pull themselves from crushing poverty by reviving ancient traditions of making crafts and art from felt. Breathtaking mountain ranges are the backdrop of some of the reenactments of Kyrgyz folklore and fables, which are interwoven throughout. Additionally, the inclusion of proverbs, a bread making scene, and traditional music gives viewers a deeper look into the culture. This transforms this film into a piece you’d more likely see on the Discovery Channel versus a simpler YouTube clip you’d see on a travel blog."
