Product Description:

Astana, Kazakhstan: Capital is a fascinating film that covers the tenth anniversary of the creation of Astana, the new capital of Kazakhstan. Kazakhstan is one of the very few countries to attempt to build - not just a city - but a capital out of practically nothing. After Kazakh independence was gained in 1991, work was begun on Astana. Old Soviet era buildings were torn down, and construction started practically from scratch in the middle of the Kazakh steppes - almost the middle of nowhere. Astana was going to be the new center of culture and commerce in central Asia and it promised a better life to all central Asians recently freed from rule of communism. This promise attracted people from Uzbekistan to Tajikistan, but has it lived up to its publicity? The film is ambivalent about the answer to that question, but at the same time Astana, Kazakhstan: Capital is a beautifully filmed, insightful look into the use of patriotism in art and architecture during the building of a capital and a country.
