Berlinale Selects Alexandre Koberidze’s feature for world premiere

For the first time in 30 years, a full-length Georgian film has been chosen to compete for principal award at the Berlin International Film Festival. The feature “What Do We See When We Look at the Sky?”  will be premiered at the event in June. 

Featuring Georgian actors Ani Karseladze, Giorgi Bochorishvili and Vakhtang Fanchulidze as protagonists, the film will bring the filmmaker's look at romantic partners waking up one day with changed appearances and losing contact with one another as a result. “It’s love at first sight when Lisa and Giorgi meet by chance. But the next day, they both wake up with different appearances, being different people, and they can no longer find each other," said Koberidze in a conversation with the Georgian National Film Center.

The last film from Georgia, which was presented on Berlinale, was Temur Babluani’s “The Sun of The  Sleepless”.

Another Georgian director's work will also be screened at the Berlin Film Festival- Salome Jashi's documentary "Taming the Garden" will be presented in the "Berlinale Forum" section.
