When the Earth Seems to Be Light

In the film When the Earth Seems to Be Light we get to follow some skaters, artists and musicians in the Georgian city and capital Tbilisi. They meet at different concrete yards to go skateboarding, but in parallel to their activities we also get to hear about their thoughts on life, society and culture of skateboarding – and what it means for them. They feel that they stand out in a country they describe as limited and fixed in the past. Beyond the concrete yard where they are surrounded by police sirens in the background the film’s mixes it with televised images of violent demonstrations and pride parades getting attacked.

Don’t miss the directors Salome Machaidze, Tamuma Karumidze and David Meskhis’ visit to the screening on March 12 at Bio Rio!
