London Georgian Film Festival: Reflections on the Black Sea
Nearly 3,000 years ago the ancient Greeks conquered the Black Sea and colonised the coastline as far as Georgia, the end of their known world. Today the Black Sea has witnessed the invasion of Ukraine, and the sunken Russian flagship Moskva has joined the ancient shipwrecks far below the busy waterways on the crossroads of East and West.
The 2023 London Georgian Film Festival will cast a spotlight on the Black Sea and tell the stories of the surrounding nations through film. With undiscovered silent masterpieces from the 1920s and powerful World cinema from the 2020s, this is a rare chance to see recent and classic films from Georgia, Romania, Turkey and Ukraine hardly shown in the UK.
