The Machine Which Makes Everything Disappear Republic of Georgia, 2012, 97 minutes Director: Tinatin Gurchiani
A filmmaker puts out a casting call for young adults, aged 15- to 23. The director wants to make a film about growing up in her home country, Georgia, and find commonalities across social and ethnic lines. She travels through cities and villages interviewing the candidates who responded and filming their daily lives. Together, their tales weave a kaleidoscopic tapestry of war and love, wealth and poverty, to create an extraordinarily complex vision of a modern society that still echoes with its Soviet past.
