A record of the epistolary encounter between French artist and filmmaker Eric Baudelaire and Maxim Gvinjia, former Foreign Minister of the breakaway Caucasian state of Abkhazia, Letters to Max is both a chronicle of a developing friendship and an ingenious and unusual essay film.

Our take

Eric Baudelaire’s rich and speculative essay film is a moving meditation on nationhood, which also traces the emergence of an unlikely friendship. With echoes of Chris Marker’s Letter from Siberia, this 2014 festival hit explores the unexplorable through a chain of correspondence.
