The busy Didube train and bus station has something as improbable as a veterinary office. Dr. Niko has been running it for 20 years, however, in the past years, his customer base has dropped and he will have to move out. Watch the winner of the Focus Caucasus Award! A building as a metaphor of the history of one country: Pirimze was built in the 1970s as a shop window of socialism, however, it started dilapidating… In The Ruler, director Shalva Shengheli captures the paradox of post-communism: Stalin’s statue was raised in the monastery garden of a little village. Should it be removed or should it stay there? My Kith and Kin follows little Lolita who has a Russian mother and an Azerbaijani father. Through her eyes, we can see the first encounter with her father’s culture on her first journey to his homeland.
