Europe’s ideas about Georgia are often still rather vague, despite the country’s increasing presence here: Georgian films and books and Georgia itself, as guest of honour at the 2018 Frankfurt Book Fair or as a tourist destination, are continually adding to its visibility.
As its contribution to this year’s German-Georgian Friendship Year, the Heinrich-Böll-Stiftung is presenting a documentary film series featuring female filmmakers from Georgia.
The films reflect the post-1989 changes undergone by the Caucasian country, which is striving to anchor its own concept of itself firmly in modernity as it seeks a place for itself between East and West. Interestingly female directors are successful in Georgia, especially with documentaries, while internationally women in the film industry are highly underrepresented.
