Two Roads 12+

(Postiženi muzikou), Radovan Síbrt, CZ 2019, czech, 80 min

Dyed hair, earrings, bright clothes – this image is very different from masculinity standards in Kazakhstan. And that is exactly what main characters of the documentary film Face the music / in Kazakhstan look like.

Many would not find anything unusual in the appearance of the members of music band Ninety One, but their popularity among Kazakh-speaking teenagers ignited anger of a sector of the society, leading to street protests, concerts cancellation and pressure from the government. The emergence of Ninety One has opened a whole layer of social and cultural conflicts within Kazakhstani society – contradictions between urban and rural culture, between traditionalism and globalization, between the vertical power system and personal liberty.
