Georgian Embassy Movie Series: Corn Island
Add to my Calendar Get DirectionsPrint This Event
Embassy remembers the victims of the fall of Sokhumi to forces of Russia backed separatists, forcing to flee the majority of population from Abkhazia A/R, Georgia. The Enguri river forms the border between Georgia and its breakaway region of Abkhazia. Every spring the river brings fertile soil from Caucasus down to the plains of Abkhazia, creating tiny islands. The islands are havens for wildlife but occasionally also for man. The story begins when an old Abkhaz farmer builds a hut for him and his teenage granddaughter, he ploughs the earth and together they sow corn. As his granddaughter blossoms into womanhood and the corn ripens, the old man is confronted by the inescapable cycle of life. Georgian Embassy Movie Series is a joint Project of the Embassy of Georgia to the United States and the Georgian National Film Center. The project offers monthly screenings of Georgian classics and contemporary movies.
