After the fall of the Soviet Union, Tajikistan, a former Social Soviet Republic, plunged into a devastating civil war. A famine struck the mountainous region of the Pamir where Raimberdi, a passionate and ingenious botanist, built his own hydroelectric station to help his family survive through the crisis.

This short independent film by Dutch director Wouter van Couwelaar shows a certain self-indulgent generation. ‘I want to travel so I borrow money and go – I want sex so I Tinder – I want to feel happy so I do drugs’; the belief that life is changeable within a minute. ‘Happy Tuesday’ is a funny, confronting and staggering portrait of four young women who lose themselves in drugs for different reasons. And they don’t have a problem with that at all.
