Cultural Neighboring

If the first edition of Cinetrain was searching for an imaginary border between Europe and Asia, in 2010 the second edition of Cinetrain took a group of young filmmakers a step further and had them cross existing borders: from Bishkek, to Moscow, through Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan and Russia. 20 years after the collapse of the Soviet Union, in a region of the world that use to be united as one country, people had to adapt to new borders and build new relations to their neighbors.
5 short documentaries were produced during this 3 weeks long trip.
