With the spectacular panorama of the holy mountain Suleiman-Too, the first Kirghiz UNESCO world heritage site, as a backdrop, director Elizaveta Stishova tells a love story between tradition and awakening.Karabas is not an easy person to deal with: a gambler, a drinker, a big kid who’s also a ladykiller. But his life gets really complicated when wife No. 1 rings to tell him their long-lost son Uluk has turned up. Karabas immediately sets off to see him, which gets up the nose of wife No. 2. A dilemma that forces this unusual family to decide how it wants to live from now on.
ELIZAVETA STISHOVA was born in Moscow and studied direction at the 33n Academy for Theatrical Arts. Suleiman Mountain is her debut feature film.
