Before father gets back

Mari Gulbiani

Georgia, France, Germany / 2018 / 75'



In a darkened classroom, the white walls serve as a movie screen. We are in a mountain village of Georgia. The kids’ first cinematic experience is about to begin. Among them are Iman and Eva, two Muslim girls for whom the experience becomes a turning point and inspires them to take the camera and start filming their daily lives. The girls are growing up in a valley infested by radicalism, where most people are living in a constant fear of their relatives sacrificing their lives in the name of God.
