UN DRAGON DANS LES EAUX PURES DU CAUCASE

NINO KIRTADZE

France / 2005 / 90'

Hidden away at the bottom of the Borjomi valley, home to Georgia's most beautiful landscapes and a mineral water spring that is well known throughout the region, the little village of Sakiré is witnessing the most feverish days it has ever seen. A giant pipeline built by British Petroleum, like a fire-spitting dragon, will soon cut right through this haven of peace, this oasis of clean air, this Caucasian paradise… This film is a human comedy with a universal dimension, a modern fairy tale, intertwining in a unique way a local reality with a global dimension. It is the story of the brutal face-off in everyday life where new values are colliding with traditional ones. It is also a parable for globalization: in any other country, small communities attached to their roots and customs could experience the same thing if they were confronted with decisions coming from powerful and distant countries...
