«18 Kilohertz» refers to a sound frequency that adults cannot hear. The film focuses on the realities which faced teenagers in Kazakhstan in the late 90s, at the time of the drug boom in Almaty. It tackles one side of the conflict between the child and his parents leading to his alienation and flight from home. What makes the teenager prefer romantic asphalt streets to the cozy parental home?

Farkhat Sharipov was born in 1983, Almaty, USSR. In 2007 he graduated from the Kazakh National Academy of Arts and a year later from the New York Film Academy. In 2010, his feature debut film «The Tale of a Pink Bunny» won the Main Competition at the Eurasia International Film Festival, and «4+1» was premiered at the Busan International Film Festival. «The Secret of a Leader» (2018) won Grand Prix at the Moscow International Film Festival.
