By the river of oblivion, a lonely horsemen passes through a village where children play with hidden desires, adults are indulged in a celebration and violence and love are instinctive parts of life.

Our take

The rhythms of life in a Georgian village—young people playing, traditional singing, a budding love—take on the elastic quality of myth in this ravishingly textured, 35mm short from Dea Kulumbegashvili (Beginning). Hints of oblivion, sexuality, and self-immolation permeate the smoke-filled air.
