Dariko and Khaka are an ultra-low-budget news team in Georgia. Whether it’s elections, obituaries, a rare owl, or a fashion show for teenage girls, the pair tries to give an honest view of the events that shape their environment—revealing a country that has begun a still chaotic transition in turn.
After several short documentaries, Georgian filmmaker Salome Jashi made her feature debut with this beautiful exploration of a local TV station in the town of Tsalenjikha. A panoramic, subtly political portrait of daily life, The Dazzling Light of Sunset sees one compositional wonder follow another.
