Au-Pair. Tamar Magradze
Au-Pair - is a film about those who choose the right candidates for the au-pair program and those wishing to take part in it. Is au-pair a lucrative business for those running it or a chance of the lifetime for young people? For those from Georgia it's a promising adventure, an escape into the rich and thriving world of the West. But who knows the difference between harsh reality and the rosy dreamworlds?

Zahesi 708. Tamuna Karumidze
Documentary, 2002, 45 min.
The film is just like one week of life in Tbilisi of the 90s. Capital of Georgia after soviet system broke down and the organaised and usual lifestyle just vanished. We dive into the Georgian reality and into the real emotions. There is nothing to investigate. There is a lot to observe... just to watch… (T. Karumidze)
