Permanent Travel – Georgia’s Restless Cinema Retrospective

1966 • Georgia (USSR) • 20’
National Premiere

A railway controller’s romantic encounter is disrupted by the appearance of an unattended umbrella, which becomes the focus of attention of the pair. The films by Kobakhidze, in which reality always seems at risk, have an underlying subversive propensity that changes the laws of gravity in a broad sense. And no one is impervious to it, from the authorities that discouraged him to the spectator who doesn’t know whom to follow.
