The Road to Mother

Directed by Akan Satayev

Release: 2016
Runtime: 135
Country: Kazakhstan
Language: Kazakh

Spanning nearly nine decades from the 1930s to the present, The Road to Mother is a sweeping yet personal epic that follows several generations of a Kazakh family that is determined to stay united through war, famine, collectivization, and separation. Focusing on a young man who is torn away from his mother by upheaval of war, he is forced to endure harrowing experiences from childhood into adulthood without her to protect him. Kazakhstan’s official submission for Best Foreign Language Film at the Academy Awards®, The Road to Mother is ultimately a stirring drama about the power of maternal love. War drives them apart but love is destined to reunite them.
