The Boy From Kyrgyzstan

Kevin van der Heuvel went to Kyrgyzstan where he met Aslanbek. A young boy living with his family in the mountains and living a hard but honest life. His vision is simple; become the richest man in the village and build a house for his mom.

For this documentary I created the sound design and music. Because the conditions for sound recordings were not ideal, all the audio was kind of unusable so I created new layers of ambience, using my own recordings. For the music I wanted it to be sereen and minimalistic so it would match the vastness and emptiness of the landscape. Pure and heartwarming, like the vision Aslanbek has of life in general.

For now I can only show you the non colour-graded trailer:
