The river as a place that is social, poetic, and also one of resistance. This student film project follows the course of the Bzhuzhi River in Guria and creates a space that combines childhood memories with ecological and cultural issues.

Following the course of the river with static shots, the short documentary tells an intimate tale that records changes and continuities whilst exploring the visual power of the featured images.
