The constant battle between family responsibilities and career aspirations - two women’s heartfelt memories of the sacrifices they made in the 1990s.
Rusudan and Tsira, like countless other women, never had enough time to devote themselves to their professional careers. By making small concessions at every stage of their lives, many women lose the chance to build the careers of their dreams.
Resurrecting dead dreams
This short documentary explores a new wave of queerness in Georgia and how music can be used as a way of liberating marginalized people. To be a queer artist in Georgia is still problematic due to entrenched homophobia in the country. Nikita, with extraordinary style and a complex personality, is currently the only openly queer artist in Georgia. The interview that explores Nikita’s world and unpacks the concept of music as a safe space, was shot in an abandoned building, which can be considered a symbol for queer spaces in Georgia, as it’s always most of the LGBTQ+ community lives in the shadows. The juxtaposition of the abandoned space, where the music video and interview take place, and the stage surrounded by a liberated audience, depicts what it means to be a queer artist in Georgia. “NIKITA: Stage as a shelter" follows the creative process of creating a track about a safe space, which was specifically created for this documentary.
