Georgian Film Night

Friday, 14th May, 6:30 – 8:30pm

EPIC Short Films and Conciliation Resources invites you to an evening of Georgian film, screened for the first time in UK, followed by discussion and music.

Five short films, made by professional and citizen journalists, tell intimate and personal stories about daily life, dreams and conflict in Georgia.  The films are produced by Eyewitness Studios, part of a new media initiative Go Group Media, set up by Margharita Akhvlediani who aims to get real life stories into Georgian TV programming that is otherwise unrepresentative, swamped by propaganda and imported viewing.

Margarita Akhvlediani, director of Go Group will lead a Q & A session after the films.

For the second part of the evening Tabuni, a London based ensemble singing Georgian folk songs and chants, lead by Tamta Turmanidze, will perform a short programme of songs, accompanied by wine and kachapuri (traditional Georgian cheese bread).

Entrance is FREE though there will be a charge for wine and kachapuri.

This event will be held at the Free Word Centre, 60 Farringdon Road, EC1R 3GA
