From Michael Andersen:
Aljazeera English has decided to RE-broadcast my 2008 documentary film about Kyrgyzstan ‘Revolution gone wrong’. The film is a personal portrait of Roza Otunbayeva, now the interim leader of Kyrgyzstan. It tells the story of the failed 2005 ‘revolution’ and also describes the anger and disillusionment of the population, leading towards the overthrow of the president 7 April 2010. I believe the film gives people who may not be that well-acquainted with Kyrgyzstan a much better idea of the situation and of the country’s new leader.
It’s definitely interesting, if for no other reason than to see how things in Kyrgyzstan so often seem to just go in circles.
