Synopsis: WORLD PREMIERE – Impressions from Rustaveli is inspired by an 800 years old manuscript written by S’hot’ha Rust’havely, a Georgian monk who dedicated his poem to the female King T’hamara. The manuscript is considered as prophecy for Georgian people. This film is closely linked with the figure of t’hamara, whose name recalls to her people the epoch of the nations glory, thus my work is glorification of love, beauty and nobility. The poem entitled as “Vepchistkaosani” or “The Knight in the Panther’s Skin” is a Persian and Indian tale written the Georgian language, a language which is magical in itself. The film portrays the heroes and heroines whose radiant loveliness is represented in terms of bright celestial light. Mosaics of character portraits is held together by my individualistic perception where I have not sought out the narratives to bring about graphic expression; in this case I am interested in the dynamic relationship between this poem and the Georgian people. Inner world of the poem as film is beyond static painting and beyond cinematographic representation.
