“Who is Next?” is a timely documentary that sheds light on the systemic issue of violence against women in Kyrgyzstan, with a focus on the tragic case of Aizada Kanatbekova, who was kidnapped and killed in an attempt to escape a forced marriage. The film exposes the negligence of authorities in this case, which has led to public outrage. It serves as a chilling reminder of the dangers that Kyrgyz women face and the urgent need for action to protect women’s rights.
