Dir. Tamar Shavgulidze. Georgia. 2019, 71 mins. In Georgian with English subtitles. With Nino Kasradze, Ketevan Gegeshidze, Ekaterine Kalatozishvili, Nina Mazodier, Mariam Iremashvili. More than three decades after leaving, Irina (Nino Kasradze) returns to the outskirts of Tbilisi, to the summer house of her youth, as well as to the person who has lingered heavily in her memory. Irina and Nana (Ketevan Gegeshidze) were once inseparable, sharing a bond beyond friendship that raised eyebrows in their small community. During the years since, Nana remained, married, and raised two children, including a now-grown daughter also named Irina (Ekaterine Kalatozishvili). Back in the yard where they spent their teenage years, the air is dense with the unspoken and the unrequited, their past selves enfolded into the reality of who they have become and might yet be. Georgian director Tamar Shavgulidze’s second feature is a marvel of economy, allowing import to develop over time and on her actors faces, before confidently employing an ingenious formal gambit to sensitively gesture toward the inexpressible. U.S. premiere

Preceded by The Harvesters (Dir. Derek Howard. Kenya, Canada. 2019, 5 mins.)
