«My Uzbek Dream» is a poetic documentary filmed in Uzbekistan in 2019 for the French TV channel Paris Premiere (M6 Group).
Gerard Depardieu has a strange dream. He dreams that he is walking in the desert formed on the seabed once occupied by a sea. He wakes up and he immediately understands that the sea he saw was the Aral Sea in Central Asia and he goes to Uzbekistan to turn this dream into reality. The quest for the disappeared sea will encourage him to make a unique journey through the hospitable land of Uzbekistan marked by a millennial history and cultural mixtures. The landscapes of this country, its impressive architectural monuments and Depardieu’s discussions with its multi-ethnic residents will evoke his inner reflections on nature, life, death and divinity.
