film profile], which won the Grand Prix of the International Competition at the 2017 edition of FID Marseille, is working on his highly anticipated sophomore feature, Wind Has Blown. The film will mark the director’s graduation from the German Academy of Film and Television (DFFB).
Described by Koberidze as a “romantic tragicomedy with documentary and magic cinematic elements,” Wind Has Blown will centre on Lisa and Giorgi, who accidentally meet on the street and instantly fall in love. In the heat of the moment, they forget to ask each other’s names but set a time and place for meeting the following day. Yet an unnoticed witness to the moment curses them and, the next day, Lisa and Giorgi wake up with completely changed appearances.
Giorgi Bochorishvili, Ani Karseladze, Oliko Barbakadze, Giorgi Ambrolauri, and Vakhtang Fanchulidze will star. Spoken in Georgian, Wind has Blown is being produced by the German Academy of Film and Television (DFFB), in co-production with Georgia’s Sakdoc Film, and New Matter Films (Germany).
