GEORGIA on TOFIFEST: “STREET DAYS” IN MAIN COMPETITION

FIND YOUR COUNTRY on TOFIFEST FILM FESTIVAL
Tbilisi, Georgia. Three policemen arrest Checkie, 45, and tell him to introduce his friend’s son to drugs so that they can blackmail his father. If he refuses to cooperate, he will end his life in prison. Unemployed and addicted to heroin, Checkie is in no position to refuse — but, faced with such a stark choice, he desperately tries to find a way out.

The director said about film: "For me this film is about a strange and a very sad generation. These people were born and grew up in the Soviet Union, but after this country collapsed in front of their eyes, they were forced to adapt to a different reality. (…) Many of them are no longer alive, and those who survived are called ‘the lost generation’. This film is very personal, because it tells the story of a generation which I remember, which I love, and which I pity — the generation I feel I belong to."
