Steppen Police is a still from her film Milk for Lambs. This film depicts the lives of women in the steppes of Kazakhstan, with a stream of references to nomadic mythology, shamanism and the Soviet heritage. It's a romantic, melancholic and at the same time surreal reflection on the brusque cultural development of her homeland.
"These are the kind of images you can very often see in Kazakhstan. Just policemen who are protecting something, because there are some private places in the steppe where you can stay, with nothing around. It might look very surreal. But when you ask him, of course, he has a story and everything becomes very logical." - Almagul Menlibayeva
