Will There Be a Theater Up There?!

Starring one of the most popular Georgian actors, Kahki Kavsadze, and based on the true-life experiences of the Kavsadze family, this powerful film is part historical essay and part recreated biography; it uses the tragic circumstances of the twentieth century (World War II and the aftermath of the Soviet regime) as a backdrop for the chronicle of a Georgian family. Opening scenes depict a former railroad car repair plant bearing the name of Stalin; then the film proceeds to the stage of Tbilisi's Rustaveli Theater, an apt location filled with poetic resonances for this poignant work of reclaimed history.
