Salomé Jashi Masterclass: Cinematic Power of Life

Guest: Salomé Jashi

Host: Hana Kulhánková, coordinator of IDF Industry Sessions

All the films that Salomé Jashi directed have a strong visual style, often minimalistic and very poetic. They portray ordinary people and show dramas that happen in their everyday lives. In the Masterclass, Salomé Jashi will share her experience with all the aspects of making her films (e.g., from initial idea, methods of working with protagonists, building of a storyline, political aspect of her work, international film crew, post-production). She will also speak about possibilities of producing films in Georgia. 

The Masterclass is part of the IDF Industry Sessions series, organized by the Institute of Documentary Film in Prague. In cooperation with One World International Human Rights Documentary Film Festival.

Taming the Garden

The roots of centuries-old Georgian trees go deep. But not deep enough to avoid being excavated and transported to the private garden of a former prime minister.
