Georgian Cinema with Maryna Ajaja

Join us for another discussion on Eastern European films hosted by Otilia Baraboi, manager of the Romanian Film Festival Seattle, and her special guest, Maryna Ajaja (poet and SIFF programmer).

We will discuss the Georgian film "In Bloom", as well as common themes and aesthetics in Eastern European cinema. You will recognize the "languid camera work of veteran Romanian New Wave cinematographer Oleg Mutu". Mutu also worked on the Cannes winning film 4,3,2 by Cristian Mungiu.  



From my protest at what I had seen...

Two young girls defy ancient patriarchal traditions in Georgia's stunning film entry for the Oscars.
