The Light Thief(2010)

The Light Thief
 Director: Aktan Arym Kubat
 Country: France | Kyrgyzstan | Germany | Netherlands
 Runtime: 76




 In this colourful modern-day parable of good and evil, a humble village electrician devotes his compassion and ingenuity to destitute neighbours in a wind-swept valley of Kyrgyzstan.

Played with wry humanity by acclaimed writer-director Aktan Arym Kubat, the trusting “Mr. Light” strikes a suspect bargain with a rich developer running for local office, as unemployment threatens the survival of the community. Stoking a dream to supply wind-generated electricity to the whole valley, Mr. Light comes up against an
increasingly dark cloud of corruption.
