“When the Earth seems to be Light”
Young Georgian skaters, artists and musicians feel trapped between the powers of the Church and the political world. They create their own open spaces beneath viaducts and at other “non-places” that lend themselves to romantic notions of a free existence. Questions are posed to them about God, love and freedom, but these boys would much rather just be skating – for many of them it has grown into an obsession… The portraits of the skaters are based on a series of photos by David Meskhi, one of the three directors. This impression of their daily lives is intercut with news footage of demonstrations in Georgia.”
