Film screening: And Then We Danced

Dancing is Merab‘s only passion. Being a member of the Georgian National Ensemble also represents security and a door to the free world in this poor and conservative country. But the success means not only endless toil, but also the impossibility to uncover one‘s true feelings if they go against the ideal that a couple consists of a man and a woman. Merab's life starts getting complicated when a talented new dancer named Irakli joins the ensemble. Their rivalry soon transforms into closeness that, despite social expectations, leads the young man to self-realization, liberation, and true self-expression.
