“Georgian film is a completely unique phenomenon, vivid, philosophically inspiring, very wise, childlike. There is everything that can make me cry and I ought to say that it (my crying) is not an easy thing.” – Fellini

Life Through Cinema and the British Georgian Society team up with Ciné Lumière to present a selection of the most recent Georgian films and some silent and Soviet era classics under the title Silence and Noise.

In the last few years, Georgia has consistently produced exciting and refreshingly alternative cinema. From the early days of transporting unwieldy cameras up to the high Caucasus mountains and the restrictive confines of the Soviet era, there has always been a tradition of outstandingly visual and stubbornly independent filmmaking, but there is also a characteristically innate need to tell the stories of the Georgian people and preserve their unique cultural values.

The 2022 London Georgian Film Festival will open with the UK premiere of Otar’s Death, a brilliant debut feature by Ioseb ‘Soso’ Bliadze, attended by the director, and includes a series of screenings followed by Q&As and a masterclass with Georgia’s leading international actor, Merab Ninidze.
