Street Days & Women from Georgia

Filmed against the backdrop of Tbilisi's old stone walls, lanes, and apartment blocks, this award-winning debut feature presents the world of a middle-aged, unemployed, and drug-addicted protagonist, Checkie (Guga Kotetishvili), with remarkable touches of humor and pathos. Levan Koguashvili's fine eye for character and intergenerational relationships gives depth to this drama in which more often than not it is the women-teachers, medical workers, or family members-who hold society together, balancing men's foibles.
