Light Thief  

THE LIGHT THIEF tells the story of Svet-Ake (Mr. Light), an electrician with a far greater effect on the people around him than his job defines. He is the last link in a huge energetic system and he becomes the binding bridge between the geopolitical problems of post-soviet union and the common people. Svet-Ake not only brings electric light (which is often out), but he also spreads the light of love, loyalty, life and mainly laughter.

In 1993 Aktan Arym Kubat won an award in Locarno’s Pardi di domain and a FIPRESCI Jury mention in Turin for his mid-length film SWING, recounting an eleven year old boy’s discovery of the adult world. In 2001,his second feature film, THE CHIMP, was selected for the section Un Certain Regard at Cannes. Previously, THE LIGHT THIEF was selected for the Director’s Fortnight in Cannes 2010.
