ALLES ÜBER MENSCHEN
*_FOLLOWING TALK IN PRESENCE OF DIRECTOR GIORGI ABASHISHVILI_* Sunrise. Breathe in. Somewhere in a small Georgian mountain village, Giorgi makes his way to school: for a moment he pauses - a little chat with the sun. A few seconds that change lives, not just his. Inspired by the works of the Georgian writer *NODAR DUMBADZE*, the director from Kassel *GIORGI ABASHISHVILI *captures the diversity of life in atmospheric poetic images and creates deceleration in hectic times. In nine episodes from Georgia and Germany, he notes what seems barely tangible: tragedy and comedy, grief and joy, surprise and hope, love and curiosity, death. There is the painter’s apprentice, who would rather be a poet. The grandfather who loses his grandson in the city. There are the priest and the policeman who break free from their duties for a brief moment. The parents of a terminally ill child in search of hope. The mourning man and the couple in love. And there is Grandfather Guduli, who has a chat with the sun for a last time. Exhale. Who we are? Humans! Supported by the *HESSISCHE FILMFÖRDERUNG*.
