Abstract

The article explores the transformation of female images from the Soviet time till the Independence in Central Asian cinemas. The main images of woman of the Soviet East were determined by ideology: first to give her freedom from feudalism, then to educate. Later appeared other images - of heroic daughters of labor and war. There was no space for being just a woman. Only the image of respectable mother was the stable for the national cinemas and still represents the national cultural identity.
