Pardi di domani: Concorso internazionale
Tskhoveli (The Animal)
On the street of a bleak suburb four deadbeats hang out and do nothing, but one of them doesn’t look like the others. He is the one who finds out that the world is a struggle for survival, where boundaries between humans and animals are dreadly blurred.
A group of not-so-youngsters stand on the street. They wait for nothing but for time to pass. They get high with homemade drugs. Everything is at the service of getting us in the state of mind of the main character (played by two-time Pardi di domani participant Davit Pirtskhalava). Bluish, sunless and cold visuals, subtle camera movements and a constant sound atmosphere that feels like drone music hypnotize us and awake our senses. We can feel the physical presence of people, every touch, every gesture…Stefan Ivančić
