16 Kazakhstan at 70s

Kazakhstan at 70s

Posted on November 22, 2006 by team


It has been said on some news sites today that people of the village named Gold located in Romania (which is 2000 away from Kazahstan and in Europe) try to sue “Borat” movie creators in court of New York.

They claim that they were told it’s a just a documentary about poverty in Romania, and were shocked when they found themselves in a comedy movie about… Kazakhstan.

I don’t know how big are their odds to win the case, but here are the photos of Kazakhstan 30 years ago, from Soviet archives at Soviet Museum. Soviet chronicles of course tried to tape mostly the merits leaving behind all the poverty etc. Still Kazakhstan even at that time had industry and was famous for its coal mining and cotton production.

Also I’ve read on different websites that Borat is speaking Hebrew to his fellow villagers in the movie trailer.

    Borat rocks. :)

    30 years ago, even in Kazakhstan, there was no poverty to capture on photo. There is now.

    30 years ago the was no poverty captured on photo, only unphotographed poverty…

  4. Dorin says:

    Hi, the village name is Glod (not Gold) and it means ‘Dirt’ in Romanian.
    Otherwise, I agree that the poverty was left unphotographed, as well as crimes against humanity that were not so uncommon those days.

    there were some reports in the local papers here in the US that BORAT (or “BORDT” in the weird Roman-Cyrillic hybrid alphabet they sometimes use) has had the effect of getting some westerners interested in Kazahkstan.

    I’m not sure how true that his, but it’s an interesting development.

    Kazahks should take advantage of this and try to generate some western tourist income.

  12. honey says:

    In the movie Borat also spoke polish, arabic, some russian as well as hebrew.

  13. FRESCO says:

    In the borat movie dont see this LOL

  14. Robert says:

    Borat is there, and always has been there, not to mock the peoples of Central Asia, but to mock the people that Sascha Baron-Cohen picks on.

    Yes, in one of the scenes it’s pretty much agreed that he’s speaking Hebrew, but as said above, most of his key-words are Polish.

    The whole idea is to make a character so ridiculously unbelievable that it’s hard to think that anyone could fall for ‘Borat’, and yet, however, they do.

  15. Pashok says:

    the slide show is great, ALmaty is my home…..about Borat… it is not about KAzakhstan that much, it is about Americans having absolutely NO clue where the KZ is and what that country all about…their reaction that’s what funny not the gypsies in Romania….
