Two Exciting Documentaries as Agreement Outcome
Outcomes of the agreement on the joint production of documentary films, signed between the National Association of Electronic Mass Media of Uzbekistan (NAEMM) and the Korean Broadcasting System (KBS), have been presented in Tashkent.
It was signed in July 2017 and it meant the creation of two documentary films about the historical and cultural heritage, national traditions and the current stage of social and economic development of the two countries - Uzbekistan and the Republic of Korea. Initially it was planned that for the filming of documentary films a creative group from Uzbekistan will visit Korea, and the Korean film crew will make a visit to our country.
Filming of a documentary film in our republic was held last October, during which NAEMM assisted colleagues from Korea in organizational, creative and administrative matters. This film, entitled “Sasha’s Arirang” is dedicated to the 80th anniversary of the Korean Diaspora in Uzbekistan. It was successfully broadcasted on the air of the KBS channel and was well received by the TV viewers of the Country of morning freshness. Soon it will be shown on non-governmental TV channels in Uzbekistan, now dubbing in Russian is coming to the end.
As part of the agreement, the NAEMM film crew visited the Republic of Korea to shoot a documentary about the Uzbeks living in the country. The film tells about the 25th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Uzbekistan and Korea, friendly relations between the two countries in the spheres of economy, culture and sport, Uzbek youth studying in this country. It will be aired in March this year.
At the presentation it was noted that such projects will serve to strengthen friendly relations and will promote the development of tourism of our countries.
