Yusupova, Mairam

Born: Dushanbe in Tazikhistan, Soviet Union
A graduate of VDIK, Yusupova works in film and television. She has made more than thirty documentaries, many of them depicting the troubles of her home country, which has spent much of the past decade embrioled in a civil war. Even her acclaimed feature, The Time of the Yellow Grass-- Kiarostami-like in its blurring of documentary and fiction-- though predating the war, foretold of tragic events on the horizon.
