Something about Georgia

Year
2010
Country
France
Duration
103’
Director
Nino Kirtadze

The film takes us through a critical year in the life of Georgia's young democracy- from the presidential election of January 2008 to the chaos of the war with Russia and the sobering aftermath - and raises questions about political responsibility and the morality of international affairs. The story is told through its main actors: the Georgian president, the Georgian government, the political opposition, foreign leaders , international delegations and organisations and the ordinary Georgian people. The film intimately captures the human and political drama of those months, when Georgia found itself briefly at the centre of global attention, and poses searching questions about the modern world and its values.
