Director Mariam Khatchvani
Wanted by three men, the beautiful Dina must struggle against the old customs of her remote community if she’s to marry the man she loves. Khatchvani’s impressively understated direction results in wonderfully naturalistic performances in this intense and moving romantic drama set in the spectacular Caucasus mountains. UNESCO Cultural Diversity Award (APSA).
