New DVDs from Central Asia in the Kent Cooper Room

Recently Kent Cooper Room received a DVD collection of Central Asian cinema prepared by Open Society Institute (Soros Foundation). The collection contains 10 films and represents five Central Asian countries: Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. There are 2 films from each country, one made during Soviet period and one during independence after the collapse of Soviet Union. Each film is subtitled in both Russian and English.

The Libraries will host a screening of these very important films in fall 2008.
