New episode of ‘Abai Zholy’ animation project premieres online

The next episode of the animation project ‘Abai Zholy’ (The Path of Abai) is already available for Kazakh viewers. The fifth chapter of the video summary of the famous eponymous novel by Mukhtar Auezov has been released, the youth portal reported. 

The project consists of short videos that summarize the novel ‘The Path of Abai’. These are animated doodle videos, in which pictures that appear on the screen are drawn by an invisible hand. 

Each episode presents a summary of a separate chapter of ‘The Path of Abai’ novel. There will be a total of 28 episodes. Thus, the viewers will be able to watch a new episode every Monday at least for the next three months. For example, the next video summary ‘Bel-beleste’ tells about how the conflict between the Yrgyzbai and Zhigitek clans turns into clashes, and Abai’s father Kunanbai barely escapes trial. The situation is aggravated by the fact that the great Kazakh poet himself is in love with a girl who is from the enemy family. Those who wish to watch the episode now, can do so on the Youtube channel of the youth portal ‘Massaget TV’.

The video project that was supported by Kazakh Ministry of Information and Social Development was launched to mark the 175th birth anniversary of Abai Kunanbaiuly.
