Duration

Director
Alexander Kvatashidze

For Alex, as for the rest of Georgia, the war in Chechnya felt very far away, something they only saw on Russian TV. But in fact it was just over the mountains. He’d never imagined going there, but he did. He followed the French photographer who he had met a few days before at the fashion show. The war experience that Alex comes back with doesn’t leave him in peace. Something calls him back again. He wants to become a warphotographer but nobody knows him, nobody wants him. Alex meets many war reporters and some of them become close friends. He stays connected to the war through the stories of his friends that he follows for years. For 15 years he observes what war does to them.
