Dir. Dea Kulumbegashvili. 2020, 161 mins. In Georgian with English subtitles. In a sleepy provincial town, a Jehovah’s Witnesses community is under attack from an extremist group. In the midst of this conflict is Yana, the wife of the community leader, whose familiar world is slowly crumbling around her. Meanwhile, a detective intrudes on her home with devastating consequences. First-time filmmaker Dea Kulumbegashvili shoots in luminous 35mm long takes that boldly evoke isolation and longing, telling a profound story of a woman’s resilience against communal hostility and violence.
