Chilla focuses on a family living in rural Uzbekistan, surrounded in isolation by a striking, mountainous terrain. In this matriarchal home, men are inexplicably removed. Each of the four women portrayed find themselves at turning points–of one sort or another–in their lives. Director Ismailova offers a contemplative view into an extraordinarily intimate female world. Her film is a portrait of four individuals closely tied to one another, and the solitary process by which each builds their own identity. It is a testament to the human will towards self-determination, told through carefully composed, sweeping imagery.

He had imagined the court room as a big place. It wasn’t. It was about the size of his living room, with an elevation at one end, with a dais on it. The judges and the attorneys sat there. Below it was an old wooden rail, worn out in some places. That was his place. There was another seat for his lawyer. At the back, about 20 or 30 chairs were stowed out for the non-existent crowd.
