Today in Kinokultura: my article about IV Silver Akbuzat IFF, Ufa


From Ufa with Love!


From 24-27 August 2019 the IV International Film Festival Silver Akbuzat took place in Ufa, the capital of Bashkortostan. Akbuzat is a mythological, winded horse from the Bashkir epos and from fairy tales. For the first time it was described in the epos Akbuzat. The winged, heavenly horse is a symbol of goodness and justice, of true obedience to the powerful warriors, the batyrs, who fight for general happiness.
