Eyewitnesses on the Road to Freedom

12 April, 2016 @ 6:30 pm - 7:15 pm

Two of Georgia’s most famous novelist-screenwriters, Aka Morchiladze and Dato Turashvili in conversation with documentary filmmaker Teresa Cherfas about the rocky path to independence, the civil war that followed, and the
legacy of the ‘90s – a time of bread queues and blackouts. Turashvili’s Flight from the USSR probed the true story of a group of Georgian students who hijacked a Soviet airliner in 1983 to escape to the West, and whose execution
shocked society. In Aka Morchiladze’s Journey to Karabakh a privileged youth from Tbilisi on a road trip looking for drugs strays into the Nagorno-Karabakh war.
