Rus­sian tele­vi­sion doc­u­men­taries in part­ner­ship with the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Elec­tronic Me­dia of Uzbek­istan and the State Com­mit­tee for the De­vel­op­ment of Tourism in our coun­try will shoot a cy­cle of four doc­u­men­taries called “Uzbek­istan. Love Le­gends”.

The film will tell about the his­tory of our an­cient land, the Great Silk Road, civ­i­liza­tions that ex­isted in Uzbek­istan, the tol­er­ance of our coun­try, where rep­re­sen­ta­tives of more than 130 eth­nic­i­ties live in peace and friend­ship, about the na­tional Uzbek art, sci­ence, ar­chi­tec­ture, gas­tro­nomic spe­cial­ties and culi­nary tra­di­tions. It is ex­pected that the films will cover the main as­pects of the cul­tural and his­tor­i­cal de­vel­op­ment of Uzbek­istan from an­tiq­uity to moder­nity.

“We would like to tell the Rus­sian au­di­ence about Uzbek­istan through the prism of our an­cient folk le­gends about love – love for their land, love for art and sci­ence, love for great com­man­ders, war­riors, grand sto­ries about hu­man feel­ings, with­out which the Uzbek peo­ple would not have cre­ated such beau­ti­ful ar­chi­tec­ture , poetry, mu­sic. With­out that, there would be no such thing as the cul­tural her­itage of Uzbek­istan,” said the au­thor and gen­eral pro­ducer of the doc­u­men­tary se­ries, the Hon­ored Jour­nal­ist of Uzbek­istan Fir­davs Ab­dukha­likov.

Of course, the le­gends of love will be in­com­plete with­out sto­ries about the love of a woman. The film­mak­ers in­tend to fa­mil­iar­ize them­selves in more de­tail on the spot with an­cient le­gends, such as, for ex­am­ple, Tahir and Zuhra, which is not in­fe­rior to Shake­speare’s fa­mous Romeo and Juliet tragedy in terms of emo­tional im­pact, as well as re­call the story of Alexan­der the Great’s love for Rox­ana emerged after the con­quest of the ter­ri­tory of Cen­tral Asia by the great com­man­der and the cap­ture of the girl. Alexan­der mar­ried this beauty, there were po­lit­i­cal mo­tives in it, since she was the daugh­ter of the lo­cal Sog­dian ruler. But the au­thors of the film are sure that this event was un­doubt­edly “guilty” and love. They also plan to talk about this in their film.

Lead­ing ar­chi­tects, his­to­ri­ans, heads of con­fes­sions, lo­cal his­to­ri­ans, sci­en­tists and cul­tural fig­ures, fa­mous chefs of Uzbek­istan will take part in the cre­ation of doc­u­men­tary films.

As the scriptwriter of the doc­u­men­tary Ta­tiana Basova em­pha­sized, “the co­op­er­a­tion of the Rus­sia-Cul­ture TV chan­nel and NAESMI started with the film Uzbek­istan. The ac­quired rev­e­la­tions”, which was re­leased a lit­tle over a year ago. The film was the first in 25 years, a tape about Uzbek­istan, cre­ated on our chan­nel. I note that it was the view of the Rus­sians and their vi­sion of the new Uzbek­istan in the re­al­i­ties of the twenty-first cen­tury. The film had a high rat­ing and aroused great in­ter­est among our view­ers. That is why we de­cided to con­tinue this work.”

To date, this is the fifth project of NAESMI to­gether with Rus­sian TV chan­nels. Pre­vi­ously, the films “Uzbek­istan, the Pearl of Sands”, “Karakalpak­stan through the Sands of Time”, “Uzbek­istan. Dis­cov­ered Rev­e­la­tions”, “Nukus. Un­known col­lec­tion”.

Film­ing of this unique film is sched­uled for com­ple­tion in the spring of next year. His script has not yet been writ­ten; it will be cre­ated in stages, since the au­thors of the doc­u­men­tary film want to learn more about Uzbek­istan and only then re­flect ev­ery­thing in the film.
