film profile] is a co-production between Georgia, Russia, Spain and Croatia. The film is the director’s first feature, and was screened in the East of the West competition at the Karlovy Vary International Film Festival, taking home the Grand Prix in the sidebar. The story is set in the 1990s, after a civil war, when two families on the winning side are relocated to the hastily vacated houses of the defeated. However, they don’t seem to be able to build a new, peaceful life, as the scars of the war continue to rage within them. We met up with Glurjidze at the festival to talk about the film.
