“The Wonderful Kingdom of Papa Alaev”

Meet Tajikistan’s answer to the Jackson family. For more than 50 years the Alaev family, a multigenerational folk-rock group, has blended Eastern European, Jewish and Roma influences into unforgettable performances. After the fall of the Soviet Union, their benevolent patriarch, Papa Allo, moved his clan to Israel, where he continues to rule with an iron tambourine. As generations clash, the show must go on, but who will lead the band? Set to a blazing tribal soundtrack, drama and drumbeats sing out from every entertaining exchange in this grand family affair. Enter the Kingdom and feel the beat. A featured film at HotDocs, DocAviv, IDFA, DocNYC.
