Taming The Garden მოთვინიერება in UK Cinemas and On Demand from 28th January 2022
The opening shot of Salome Jashi’s striking environmental tale captures a tree as tall as a 15-story building floating on a barge across the vast Black Sea. With astonishing cinematic style, this observational film charts one powerful man’s bizarre project to uproot and transplant hundreds of mature trees from the forests of rural Georgia to his own private garden. The film documents this brutal process of extraction as one-by-one the towering trees are pulled from the earth and transported to the palatial home of their new owner – a former Georgian Prime minister – as locals look on in horror and bemusement. Jashi captures the strange and terrible spectacle with a patient, forensic eye to construct a modern-day fable of wealth, power and privilege.
Since BGS partnered Open City Documentary Festival in presenting the UK premiere of Taming The Garden in September 2021, the film is to be distributed by Dogwoof.com in cinemas and on demand from 28th January 2022.
