CORN ISLAND

DIRECTOR: GEORGE OVASHVILI - GEORGIA

The Inguri River forms Georgia’s border with the breakaway Republic of Abkhazia, and tensions between the nations run high. Every spring the river brings fertile soil from the Caucasus, creating tiny islands: small clusters of no man’s land. An old Abkhaz farmer and his teenage granddaughter build a hut on one of the islands, plowing the earth to sow corn. When the corn has shot up, the girl, herself blossoming, finds a wounded Georgian soldier hiding among the stalks as border patrol boats look for trouble in a no-man’s land. “An astonishing feat of cinema presented with the utmost modesty . . . an unparalleled big screen experience.”—Variety. Winner of the Best Film Prize, Karlovy Vary Film Festival and this year’s Georgian submission for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar.
