Georgia – Myths und Modernity





Georgia, the country in the Caucasus, has its own language and writing and is known as the cradle of wine. The traditional choirs and folk dances are important for the identity of the people. Georgia is one of the oldest Christian countries and the most modern in the region. After a successful fight against corruption, everyday life and bureaucracy are fully digitalized. The new transparency is symbolized in the capital Tbilisi by modern architecture with a lot of glass, but at the same time the enchanting old town disintegrates. Young men and women, an artist, an entrepreneur, a bishop and a Swiss with a Georgian passport tell of their Georgia and what they want for the future. Does Georgia manage the balancing act between preserving tradition and the digital age, between Russia and Europe? A film about a small country with great ambitions.
