On the previous movie nights, we watched some of the most internationally well-known Georgian movies. This time, we will go deeper and watch something less covered but noteworthy.

I asked several people, including movie experts, and gathered some options for you. The choice is really hard, and I hope you will help to choose one of them (or suggest your option – with a source) :)

So, here is the list, all movies have original audio + English subs:

Shorts about people and their life with some touch of mystery, such as: a railway controller and his sweetheart live in peace next to the railway tracks.
