Movie Info

A powerful man, who is also the former prime minister of Georgia, has developed an exquisite hobby. He collects century old trees along Georgia's coastline. He commissions his men to uproot them and bring them to his private garden. Some of these trees are as tall as 15-floor-buildings. And in order to transplant a tree of such dimensions some other trees are chopped down, electric cables are shifted and new roads are paved through mandarin plantations.

[A] fascinating and deadpan film...

January 25, 2022 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Providing a devastating metaphor for a world gone mad, this is a poetic, provocative example of how a hard-hitting documentary tug on the communal conscience can also be wittily artistic.

January 22, 2022 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Surreal, serene and maybe just a little bit sacred.
