Young filmmakers in Kakheti

I was invited to Telavi (Administrative center of Kakheti) to attend a screening of short movies created by local students. The event was organized by a Center for Civic Engagement and it gathered people from all town.

Zura and Rati Tegerashvili are twin brothers who just moved to eleventh grade and they have been shooting films (mostly silent movies) for quite some time. As they have said in their presentation one of the reasons was an absence of a movie theater in town. “We started filming to entertain our Facebook friends, we could have never thought that our movies would be so successful,” they say.
