The United States Veterans’ Artists Alliance, in keeping with the mission and vision as veterans regarding the ability of art to shape our understanding of the world around us, is excited to announce the May 24th release of the award-winning feature film The Road to Mother.
The film, which was produced in Kazakhstan, was that country’s official submission for the 2017 Academy Awards in the category of Best Foreign Language Film and the previous 74th Golden Globes in the same category.
Inspired by true events and spanning nearly a century, the epic drama follows the journey of a young Kazakh family from the 1930s to present day and explores the history of Kazakhstan through war, famine, collectivization, and the determination of the clan to remain united.
“I’m very happy that the World Wide Motion Pictures Corporation’s marketing and distribution team could see that the film’s heartwarming story was truly universal and could be enjoyed by audiences anywhere in the world,” states the film’s director, Akan Satayev.
A portion of the box office proceeds will benefit USVAA and other veteran organizations throughout the US. Please check your local listings and be sure to go see the film opening weekend.
