A tale of love and liberation set against the backdrop of Georgian traditional dance, our Opening Film marries ideas of cultural identity, sexuality and self-expression with beauty and grace. Merab craves freedom, his body desperate to move to its own beats, but he is told there is no sexuality in Georgian dance. In the hyper-masculine, ultra-conservative world of Georgian dance, can Merab remain true to himself without jeopardizing his dreams? A visually ravishing, moving but unsentimental romance in the vein of God’s Own Country, And Then We Danced is a gripping drama that captures both the beauty and stifling social values of Tbilisi.
