Ode to the memorial


After 43 years, the place where the ode to glory was sung in Kutaisi is now the shell of an empty building, and the ode is being sung elsewhere.

What memories does the territory of the abandoned parliament building in Kutaisi hold? This place has been a point of attraction and a source of inspiration for both artists and political elites across different periods. A young director explores these memories with his handycam, guided by members of the band SKAZZ. What does the facade of the building, standing in the swamp, reflect today? How is the political landscape changing around it?
