Kyrgyzstan – what looked like freedom in 1991 never politically materialized. To this day the country remains in systemic turmoil. Bernhard Pötscher focuses less on external politics and more on the personal, subjective exposure to change, exemplified by the photographer Shailo Djekshenbaev. The metaphorical “Little Perestroika” manifests itself in his work, in his observations, like when he photographs cracks in the former airfield, but is forced to stop due to lighting conditions. Little Perestroika is a film about waiting for change, for liberation.
