Shooting of a documentary ‘Uzbekistan: the Messages Received’ gets started July 24, 2017 in Uzbekistan.
One hour-long documentary is filmed by the Russian Kultura TV channel in conjunction with NAEMM and Caravan TV channel. The film will tell how dynamic modernity in Uzbekistan goes hand in hand with deep age-old wisdom and traditions. Today they meet at every step and live in peace and harmony. Thus, the Islamic Cultural Center is being created in Tashkent, where it will be possible to comprehend the true values of enlightened Islam. The International Islamic Research Center for Studying the Heritage of Scholars and Thinkers of the Islamic World will be organized in Samarqand, as well as the favorable conditions are getting created for students in the ancient Mir-Arab Madrassah in Bukhara, which was built in 1536.
“Uzbekistan has always been a territory of tolerance, where people of different faiths and cultures peacefully coexisted. For example, the tomb of the prophet Daniel in Samarqand, the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Christian Cathedral in Tashkent are in the list of places for filming. However, the keynote and the main idea of the documentary will be unique epigraphic inscriptions on the ancient monuments of Uzbekistan, which has a rich cultural and historical heritage, as well as a narrative about the long and meticulous work of scientists of Uzbekistan to decipher these wise messages from the depths of centuries. We will narrate about how the inhabitants of modern rapidly developing Uzbekistan live according to the precepts of their forefathers and honor the traditions of enlightened Islam,” the film director Valery Belov says.
As the producer of the film Firdavs Abdukhalikov noted, for NAEMM it is the next joint project for shooting a film with Russian TV companies. “We already have projects on the shooting of documentaries ‘Uzbekistan Is the Pearl of the Sand’ and the film about Karakalpakstan ‘Through the Sands of Time’, which were prepared jointly with the famous Masterskaya Movie Company. And I am confident that our new work together with the Kultura-Russia TV channel will be a worthy gift to the Independence Day of our Republic.”
Shooting of the documentary ‘Uzbekistan: the Messages Received’ will be held in Tashkent, Samarqand, Bukhara, Khiva, Termez and other cities. Location shooting, unique film and photo documents, archival footage, materials from personal archives and museum artifacts will also be used. The film will feature interviews of outstanding architects, scientists, historians and calligraphers, as well as residents of various regions of Uzbekistan.
