Monologue (2017)

The war in Abkhazia ended more than twenty years ago. But the shadows wandering in the corridors of the republican psychoneurological hospital still remind us of its impact. Sometimes we see ourselves in those shadows and glimpse fragments of reality in their monologues. The monochromatic way they see the world carries many more meanings than we are able to perceive.

Equilibrium (2018)

Rodion is an opera singer. He gives concerts for organ music lovers in an ancient church. After his performance he is in a rush to get home – four little children, peasant farm, cornfield, visited by a cunning bear – he mockingly bypasses a trap. The life of this man is an harmonious balance of nature and music. One day the balance is disrupted. Lying in a hospital bed he is listening to Pavorotti and whispers: “God!..”
