Event Description

(Salomé Jashi,Georgia/Germany, 2016, 74 min, HD)


Skype Q&A with Director Salomé Jashi


Beautifully shot and strangely comic, Salomé Jashi’s documentary follows Dariko and Khaka, an ultra-low-budget local news team in rural Georgia. Whether it’s elections, death announcements, a rare owl, or an oddly stressful fashion show for prepubescent and teenage girls, the pair approach each story without ego and with absolute professionalism, managing every aspect of reporting and production themselves. Through subtle editing choices, Jashi suggests that nothing truly changes in this former Soviet satellite—but allows her subjects to have one last acerbic word on the matter of representation. - Art of the Real / Film Society of Lincoln Center
