“Our film doesn’t blame anyone. It does not call for action. It simply shows a new form of modern reality in which, unfortunately, a person of the 21st century lives. Our goal is to make people think and become more humane, empathic by revealing the mental sufferings of a victim. We tried to do our little bit to solve this big problem,” said the producer of ‘Batyr’ film Laura Sapa.
