Requiem to the Hot Days of Summer

1st feature


Mother and Son – a sensuous portrayal of an innate unbreakable bond defined by the invisible burden of care, silence and solitude in an isolated mountainous gorge in Georgia.


Guri and his mother, Sanata, have spent all of their life in a remote mountainous gorge in Georgia distanced from nearly any signs of urban civilization. Farming, beekeeping, and cheese making has been their lives’ routine for decades.
While witnessing the daily life of mother and son, the audience immerses in the non-verbal, contemplative relationship between the two and through gentle gaze of the camera effortlessly enters into the rural reality as an inseparable part of their being.
Through an utterly touching motherhood story, Requiem to the Hot Days of Summer embraces sadness, silence and solitude, which follows every human being as the primordial seal of their fate and brings reminiscence of a blissful way of life, which is still present in the unconscious memory of humanity.
