When The Earth Seems To Be Light

berlin screening

Yep, sometimes there's some truth to all these platitudes. In particular case: good things come to those who wait, as celebrated doc “When The Earth Seems To Be Light“ by Salome Machaidze, Tamuna Karumidze & David Meskhi will finally see its long-overdue premiere in Berlin.

“When the vast sky opens up above Tbilisi, the whirring of insect wings mixes with the sound of hard rubber wheels rolling across the pavement. Skaters. The young people are united by their fascination for the sport and their dreams of a brighter future. Far removed from mainstream conservative structures and school, the directors of WHEN THE EARTH SEEMS TO BE LIGHT follow young musicians, artists and skaters as they attempt to find their place in post-Soviet Georgia.“

After screening at more than 30 international festivals worldwide, the film received IDFA 2015 Award for Best First Appearance and Silver Prometheus for Best Georgian Documentary back home. Galerie für Moderne Fotografie and Georgian Artist Collective GOSLAB are cordially inviting you to the first public screening of the film in Berlin, which will be followed by Q&A with the filmmakers.

Berlin Premiere / Babylon / Jan 13, 2017 / 8pm / Rosa-Luxemburg-Str. 30 / 10178 Berlin-Mitte
