Biography

Artchil Khetagouri grew up in Tbilisi, close to the film studio, where his father worked. Since an early age he could observe famous Georgian directors shooting movies and he got passionate about their profession. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the studio which used to be full of people, got suddenly empty. In Georgia started a civil war and Artchil left his country.
He studied in Amsterdam at the Film and Television Academy, where he directed several short films and a documentary, Shining Shoes, broadcast on YLE (Finland).
His graduation short fiction, Heritage, premiered at the Rotterdam Film Festival and was awarded at several international festivals. It was released in the cinema in the Netherlands and broadcast on the Dutch public channels IKON TV and Kunstkanaal.
In 2006 he went back to Tbilisi and made a feature documentary about his former neighbors. The film Akhmeteli 4 was awarded the "Prix Regards Neufs" at the Visions du Réel 2007 Film festival in Nyon and the First Prize at the Rhodes Film Festival. Artchil works since 2007 on two new projects in Romania.
