Mariam

Kazakhstan, Germany  ·  2019  ·  DCP  ·  Color  ·  75'  ·  o.v. Kazakh

After her husband mysteriously disappears, Mariam, the mother of four small kids, is forced to make some fatal decisions, but also to rediscover her femininity.


The understated but lasting power of Sharipa Urazbayeva’s first film lies in the subtle transformations of a woman whose face initially yields as little softness and nuance as the harsh, wintry plain she inhabits. The magic here occurs in the simplest, most unexpected moments, when a mere exchange of glances reveals the fiery strength in Mariam’s eyes or her reflection in a mirror suddenly allows her yearning to surface.
