This explosive avant-garde film burst out of Georgia in 1929. Running into issues with the censor, the film was shelved for about 40 years. The film follows hapless Georgiy, and his struggle to overcome a rigid bureaucratic system impeding him at every turn. A surreal critique of bureaucracy, Mikaberizde uses dizzying constructivist sets, animation and even puppetry to invoke the fear and corruption underpinning the state.

This film is kindly supported by David Gigauri. New score composed by Stephen Horne.
