The Tower

Salomé Jashi

Georgia / 2018 / 4' / Italian premiere



The tower was an iconic place in village Ksuisi. This is where kids went when they skipped school, men gathered to have a drink, couples hid to kiss. After the Russo-Georgian war of 2008 the village was occupied by Russia, while the tower remained on the Georgian side. The villagers of Ksuisi were forced to leave and settle down in a special settlement for displaced people.
