FILM: Black Shorts: Georgian premiere

Monday, July 18 · 9:30pm - 11:30pm

Courtyard of Goethe Institute Georgia
16 Zandukeli Street
Tbilisi, Georgia

Plotki (Rejs e.V.), Sakdoc Film and the Centre for Arts and Culture at the Central European University proudly present five Black Shorts from Georgia.

In May 2011, twenty young creative people from across Europe met for the first time in Garikula, Georgia to share their diverse skills, undertake training in filmmaking, form into small multinational working groups and set off across the country to explore everyday life in Georgia....

The resulting Black Shorts are as diverse as they are intriguing. The films capture the lively theatrics of death in Kutaisi; the endearing character of a barber’s shop in Tbilisi; the second life of objects as scrap metal in-and-around Zugdidi; the highflying web of cable cars in Chiatura; and a day in the life of an underpass’s resident band in Tbilisi.

The aim of Sakdoc Film is to depict the transitional period that Georgia is now undergoing from being a Soviet state to becoming a 'European' country. We believe that there are number of topics, places and people that will not exist in Georgia in a few years and which are worth and even essential to film before the opportunity fades away. [but it will never fade away]
