November 23, 2014, 5:00 p.m. — Street Days (2010)
2010. Georgia. Directed by Levan Koguasvhili. With Guga Kotetishvili, Irakli Ramishvili, Giorgi Kipshidze. Filmed against the backdrop of Tbilisi’s old stone walls, lanes, and apartment blocks, this award-winning debut feature presents the world of a middle-aged, unemployed, and drug-addicted protagonist, Checkie (Kotetishvili), with remarkable touches of humor and pathos. Koguashvili’s fine eye for character and intergenerational relationships gives depth to this drama in which, more often than not, it is the women—teachers, medical workers, or family members—who hold society together, balancing men’s foibles. In Georgian; English subtitles. 89 min.
