Director

Salomé Jashi

Switzerland, Germany, Georgia / 2021 / Georgian / 91 minutes / DCP / Colour

Grand trees are uprooted from their ancient resting places and transported far away from the rural Georgian communities that planted and nurtured them for years, if not centuries. This journey, by land and sea, wreaks irreparable damage to the surrounding countryside, as they head unwillingly towards an unspecified destination. Jashi’s stately documentary silently observes this exhausting enterprise, executed by an unseen and uncaring exploiter, which evokes painful comparison to the forced mass migrations that have relocated millions with as little regard for their well-being.
