We will try to avoid clichés which filled all the films about Uzbekistan," Ghezelbash said. "The videos and movies will be designed for people living outside Uzbekistan. We will try to create on the screen a universal pattern presenting all the richness and diversity of the country. It will be practical work too, we film small clips together," Ghezelbash noted.
