HOUSE OF OTHERSDirected by Rusudan Glurjidze. 2016. Georgia, Russian Federation, Spain, Croatia. 103 minutes. Georgian with English subtitles.
With hauntingly beautiful cinematography, filmmaker Rusudan Glurjidze explores the melancholy and unease of a family seeking stability in the wake of wartime in her stunning first feature film. In the early 1990's the breakaway region of Abkhazia declared its independence from Georgia. Families across the region were uprooted and relocated to homes only recently vacated by families from the enemy’s side. Homes with lingering memories. Even in the absence of war, peace remains elusive.
