A cartoon about the Great Silk Road will be showcased in less than a year. President of the Kazakh Animated Film Association, Gali Myrzashev will present the legend about the ancient caravan road connecting the West and the East. Spectators can watch the cartoon in Kazakh. This will be the first full-length animated film dedicated to the Silk Road.

GALI MYRZASHEV, PRESIDENT, KAZAKH ANIMATED FILM ASSOCIATION:

 - My goal is to show the importance of friendship and peace to people. How is it to be friends? Not opposing each other but honouring each other’s culture. How is it to be honoured guests and have a strong relationship? This is a project that teaches patience.

Gali Myrzashev and his foreign colleagues had taken five years to write the script.

The main cartoon character is Zhibek. The animation has some elements of Chinese culture such as a big dragon and an imperial palace. China’s production centres are interested in the cartoon.

GALI MYRZASHEV, PRESIDENT, KAZAKH ANIMATED FILM ASSOCIATION:

 - I am glad that there are specialists who understand me and support my projects. They also talk about the importance of popularizing the very idea of the Silk Road. Therefore, we need to reach a new level, for example, to compete with Disney. Today we work on these goals.

In addition, the author has animated a series of ‘Keruen,’ created for the international audience. Currently, negotiations are continuing with investors for its showcase in cinemas.
