A Turkmen story

Turkmenistan, 2011-2013.

In this secret country, people fancy Bollywood movies and face dictatorship.

In this place where people long for a normal life, through traces of communism and identity loss of the new generations, foreign companies only see an occasion to expand their benefits.

In this country, which is the 4th world gas producer and only counts 6 millions of people in a territory as big as France, major strategic stakes happen for the future.

A country with a rapid developement, a young country where lovers have to hide in parks to express their feelings and students have to parade all over the city, day and night to please the President.

A country where the word « existence » often rimes with « resistance ».
