Today in Kinokultura: Review about 'Shambala' 
 
In 2018, when Kyrgyzstan celebrated Chingiz Aitmatov's 90th birthday, the government took the decision to begin production on a second film based on the motives of his famous novella "The Wihte Ship". As it turned out, the filmmaker Artyk Suyundukov had, almost a quarter of a century, dreamed of making a screen version of this story, and had on more than one occasion discussed his vision of the future film with Aitmatov himself when he was still alive. And Aitmatov had agreed on a screen version. The Kyrgyz authorities took this into consideration when deciding over the rights for a new screen version of the story.
