Permanent Travel – Georgia’s Restless Cinema Retrospective

Girl of the Mountains

Mzago da Gela
Lev Push, Shalva Khuskivadze
1934 • Georgia (TSFSR, USSR) • 60’

Mzago is an adventurous Khevsurian highlander who is fascinated by the radio, embraces changing times and sets off to the big city. Her suitor, Gela, is a less adventurous Khevsurian who decides to follow her. The opening of collective horizons in the Caucasus has been the subject of cinematic raids in the local landscape, and this time it is an incentive to the individual journey of its inhabitants—and to a resourceful comedy with the occasional Barnet touch.
