PREMIERE: "0,047% of the Land" By Gela Kandelaki +++ 10, Octobre (

CULTURE & CULTURES Intercultural film festival, France

"The people inhabiting such a small part of land are also small in numbers. Despite their extremely hard historical fate, they have managed to bear their spirit throughout the centuries and have never diverted from their ideal based on love and empathy towards each other and the humankind’.

These words said by General Lifmon at the 1913 Frankfurt Jewish Congress are still true for the modern Georgians.

0.047% of the Land
Film One: The Village

- Why does Man come to this world?
- What is freedom?
- What is friendship?
- What is love?
- Who is a good person?
- What does it mean to love one’s motherland?
- What is the truth?

These and any other questions are answered by those whose voices are not heard nowadays.
