Lake

Georgia, 2001 (MIFF 2002, Experimental)

Director: Giga Chkheidze

Set within the tranquil landscapes of modern Georgia, this poetic film reflects upon the social residues left over from the civil war that ravaged the country in 1992. In this context, death becomes matter of fact, and the human presence holds sinister promise.
