Rashid Suleimenov about national documentaries.

On September 27, at the annual «Astana Media Week», Advisor to the Minister of Information and Social Development of the Republic of Kazakhstan Rashid Suleimenov expressed his opinion at a round table on the topic «Documentary films: experience and future»

«Our national documentaries inform the audience rather than form. I'm not talking about all of them, but this is often the case. As a result, under the guise of documentaries, we have kilometer-long sheets of offscreen texts for more or less suitable video sequences. How much this can be called a documentary film is a big question. What makes our documentary film related to feature film is the presence of a thought, a certain author's message, a message encrypted in a story that has a dramatic form. The key word is encrypted, that is, woven into emotions, into experiences, into the very core of this story» said the Advisor to the Minister of Information.
