Why steal hearts when you can steal wives?

After Kyrgyzstan gained its independence in the wake of the fall of the Soviet Union, the age-old tradition of “Ala-Kachuu” has blossomed anew. “Ala-Kachuu” translates roughly as “grab and run” and describes the common scenario in which a single man gets together with friends and family to kidnap a woman whom he has set his sights on, in order to force her to marry him. Featuring beautiful cinematography and startling testimonies from several generations of Kyrgyz women, GRAB AND RUN is a fascinating look at a deeply misogynist tradition.
