Georgian Embassy Movie Series: Namme
Add to my Calendar Get DirectionsPrint This Event
Namme lives with her father Ali in a remote Georgian village in the midst of the countryside. Ali has been a water healer for many years, hoping his sons and his daughter will eventually take over this significant task within the village community. As his sons have developed in different directions, Namme is the only one willing to take over from her father and become a healer. Ali prepares her for this responsibility but the experience of the outside world, her discovery of the kind of life she is about to commit herself to, leads her into a deep crisis. Zaza Khalvashi's Namme is competing in 2019 Oscars for Best Foreign Language Film, has been nominated for 2019 Palm Springs International Film Festival, 2017 Tokyo International Film Festival, and 2015 Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival. 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 in Washington DC.
