EntertainmentAsian Cultural Center of Vermont presents LITTLE ANGEL, MAKE ME HAPPY, a film from Turkmenistan (1993, 88 minutes). During World War II in Turkmenia, the deportation of Soviet citizens of German origins begins; adults are sent to concentration camps, children to orphanages.

[flickr:2268840081] Six-year-old Georg hides from the Red Army Soldiers in his now-abandoned village, has to bury an adult relative, figure out how to care for a sick child, and, through this world turned upside down, he keeps his belief in Little Angel that he has heard from a children’s song.

The story touches on one of the most complex of problems: what is the Motherland? Central Asian film expert Gulnara Abikeyeva considers this film to be one of the top ten for her of all time.
