Director’s statement

The «18 Kilohertz» was inspired by the novel «Hardcore» by Zara Yesenaman.

The story represents the realities that Kazakh teenagers lived in the 90s during the heroin boom in Almaty. The setting of this story is interesting to me because my youth just fell on this period. This story reveals one of the many reasons why a child alienates  from the parental home.

The veiled domestic tyranny of Sanjar’s mother leads to a fight with her son. She stops talking to him and does not notice how her son becomes a prisoner of drugs.

Sanjar spends all his time with his best friend Jaga, they are fascinated by the romantic of the streets and prohibited places.

They enjoy their new friends and do not notice the changes in themselves. The world seems so bright and carefree. But all this collapses overnight, when during   another «celebration of life», Jaga dies of an overdose.
