Will There Be a Theatre Up There?!

(Netavi ik teatri aris?!)

BAMPFA Collection

featuring

Kahki Kavsadze,

Starring one of the most popular Georgian actors, the late Kahki Kavsadze (1935–2021), and based on the true-life experiences of the Kavsadze family, this powerful film is part historical essay and part re-created biography, using 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. The 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.
