House of Others

Winner of the East of the West Grand Prix at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival, this is a visually stunning drama about two families struggling to adjust in a post-war world.

After the Georgian Civil War of the early 1990s, families on the victorious side are granted the homes of the defeated. Installed in a hastily abandoned house, a family settles into an idyllically beautiful setting of orchards and green hills. Their neighbours are three women, one of whom is proficient with arms and suspicious of all she encounters. Now in a time of peace, these families try to embrace their chance to start again, but are haunted by the past. Based in part on her own life story, Rusudan Glurjidze's remarkably assured debut is an atmospheric and poetic film that has earned comparisons to the works of Tarkovsky and Bergman.

Rusudan Glurjidze was born in Tbilisi, Georgia, in 1972, and studied at the Georgian State Film & Theatre Institute. Her debut feature film, House of Others, won the East of the West Grand Prix at the Karlovy Vary Film Festival, and the Grand Prix at the Eurasia International Film Festival.
