The Wonderful Kingdom of Papa Alaev

SERET London - the Israeli Film & TV Festival

Cinema

Directed by Tal Barda, Noam Pinchas | 2016 | Israel | Hebrew with English subtitles | 74mins

A modern-day Shakespearean tale about a famous Tajik musical family.

Controlled by the charismatic, funny yet overbearing patriarch, Papa Alaev, who at the age of 80 is starting to lose his grip on the ’family business’, the family is sent on a rigid and unsure transition from monarchy to democracy. Father, Grandfather, and music master Allo Alaev, also named Papa, has played music since the age of three.

Priding himself on being Tajikistan’s national treasure, he leads his family in Tel Aviv like a monarch. Every single member of his family has a crucial role in his musical dream of remaining the greatest performing folk music clan. But his sons and daughters don’t want to work under the 80-year-old’s directives anymore, and as it’s time for them to follow their own path and find their own voice – how will the family stay united and manage through this change?
