The Released – Short Documentary by Kanat Beisekeyev



Kazakhstani documentarian Kana Beisekeyev’s latest film is about Valya, a woman being released from 15 years of imprisonment and her journey back home to retrieve her daughter from the orphanage whom she hasn’t seen for 9 years. Kana paints a humble portrait of Valya as she explains to him her reflections on her arrest, release, and the anticipation of reunion with her daughter. Being back in society, Valya must learn to rekindle her social habits and adapt to the regrets and changes that has already been made over the past 15 years.
