Taming the Garden

About the Film

A powerful and anonymous man has developed an unusual hobby. He buys century-old trees, some as tall as 15-story buildings, from communities along the Georgian coast, and has them excavated to collect them for his private garden. In order to transplant trees of such dimensions, the landscape surrounding them is ripped apart and the people living around them are forced to adapt to the disruption.

In her multi-award-winning creative documentary Taming the Garden, Salomé Jashi follows this process, she reflects on the theme of forced migration, where “uprooting” is more than a metaphor. Viewing ecology through a critique of male power and dominance, the documentary delivers one of the most innovative cinematic accounts of this subject.

⚠️ The screening will be followed by a Q&A session with the participation of the filmmakers.
