Permanent Travel – Georgia’s Restless Cinema Retrospective

Plague

Chiri
Davit Takaishvili
1983 • Georgia (USSR) • 10’

Disease is born in unhealthy environments and spreads wherever there’s carelessness. Disease changes souls and standardises wills and the landscape. Disease is quick, popular and aims at exceeding itself. It is difficult to go away, and it may come back. The film was awarded the Golden Palm for best short film at Cannes in 1984.
