Millions have laughed at Borat, the movie about the bogus journalist and filmmaker from Kazakhstan, and at its mocking depiction of the economically struggling former Soviet Republic. Maybe it’s poetic justice that a film by a real Kazakhstan director about the real Kazakhstan should win the FIPRESCI Prize at the Torino Film Festival — a meeting point for contemporary international independent cinema. with a special attention to emeriging cinemas and filmmakers.
