Centaur
Anyone who craves adventure, black humour, dark deeds, mysterious legends and mythical beasts, will find much to love in Centaur. A rare submission from Kyrgyzstan, Centaur revolves around the epic titular hero, who lives in the depths of the countryside, with his deaf-mute wife and son. Centaur has quite a bit of peace and quiet then, to dwell on his obsession with horses and specifically, the loss of Kyrgyz national pride and unity. As the two concepts become ever entwined in Centaur’s mind, he hatches a crazy scheme that will, in his mind, restore his countrymen to their state of former glory and power. First – he has to rustle a few horses… What could possibly go wrong?
