The Vertigo Effect

Author: Maka Gogaladze


Georgians, like people anywhere, can share the same history, walk the same streets and speak the same language, but still live in groups isolated from each other, in different surroundings.

They analyze and evaluate the past that belongs to their collective and emotional memory in different ways -- some are in bondage to that history, while others seek to escape it.

This can lead to a type of vertigo that distorts perspectives. The future looks different to everyone. Any point of intersection between these groups, where they can find a common perspective, completely disappears.

This film attempts to unite these different spaces into one.

Film has been selected as a part of the GroundCinema's short film screenings.
