BAMPFA presents a special film series that showcases a selection of works from its archive. Among the organization’s treasured special collections are the rare and distinctive holdings of Georgian cinema produced during the Soviet era and since the country’s independence from the Soviet Union in 1991.

Georgian cinema is rich in tradition, song, history, love of the arts, and literature. Filmmakers have often focused on the country’s remarkable and varied landscape and on the centrality of the family in Georgian culture. We hope that fans of Ensemble Basiani and the musical tradition of traditional polyphony will take an interest in the noteworthy and beloved cinema tradition from the Caucasus.

The film series runs Oct 29–Nov 27, 2022.
