Run time is approximately ninety minutes with no intermission.

Written by Talgat Batalov and Yekaterina Bondarenko
Translated by John Freedman
Directed by Sami Ismat

In Talgot Batalov’s Uzbek, the tales of Central Asian immigrants become fodder for a stand-up comedy routine. The ironies, dangers, paradoxes, and absurdities of moving from one culture to another are satirized in this intrepid tribute to human resilience. Uzbek avoids cliches and partisanship, insisting instead that everything cuts two ways.
