DOCUMENTARY MONDAYS
un eveniment Centrul Ceh sustinut de Pilsner Urquell

In cooperation with ART Fusion

Un vechi proverb kirghiz spunea ca o casnicie reusita incepe intotdeauna cu lacrimi. Daca proverbul ar fii fost adevarat atunci aceasta tara din Asia Centrala ar fi fost un paradis pentru cuplurile proaspat casatorite.

BRIDE KIDNAPPING IN KYRGYZSTAN
Canada, 2004, 51 min
Regie: Petr Lom
VO / subtitrari in engleza

Una dintre traditiile practicate aici este rapirea fetelor tinere care mai tarziu sunt fortate de familiile ginerilor sa se casatoreasca.
‘’Nu te mai impotrivi si nu mai plange. Cu timpul o sa te obisnuiesti , pana la urma si noi am fost rapite cand eram tinere.’’ Acestea sunt cuvintele a doua femei in varsta care incearca sa calmeze o tanara rapita, plina de temeri, care incearca sa se adapteze in noul ei camin. Doar in cazuri extraordinare aceste fete reusesc sa scape. Motivele pentru continuarea acestei traditii, ale carei practici intra in conflict cu legea sunt numeroase. Unul dintre aceste motive este modelul patriarhal al societatii kirghize. Un alt motiv ar fi situatia financiara a familiilor nevoite sa plateasca suma stabilita familiei miresei.

ENGLISH VERSION

According to an old Kyrgyz proverb, a good marriage always begins with tears. If this were truly the case, then this Central Asian country would be a newlywed’s paradise. Among the traditions often practiced here is the kidnapping of young girls, who are subsequently violently forced into marriage by the family of the groom. “Stop struggling and don’t cry anymore.
In time you will get used to it, after all we were also kidnapped when we were young.” These are the words of two older women trying to calm down the newly kidnapped girl, who is cowering in fear in the corner of her “new home.”
Only in extraordinary cases do these girls succeed in escaping. The reasons for the continuance of this tradition, whose practice is in conflict with the law, are many. One is the extremely patriarchal model of the functioning of the Kyrgyz society, another reason is the financial situation of many families, who cannot afford to pay the requested monetary sum to the family of the girl.
