Ely Film Society - celebrating and sharing film in all its forms
Our next film, on MONDAY 17th April, is Tangerines, a war drama from Georgia.
Set in 1992, during the conflict between Georgia and Abkhazian separatists in the wake of the Soviet Union's dissolution, this compassionate tale focuses on two Estonian immigrant farmers who decide to remain in Georgia long enough to harvest their tangerine crop.
When the war comes to their doorsteps, Ivo takes in two wounded soldiers from opposite sides. The fighters vow to kill each other when they recover, but their extended period of recovery has a humanizing effect that might transcend ethnic divides.
Set against a beautiful landscape defiled by war, this poetic film is a morality tale addressing issues of conflict, reconciliation and pacifism.
Please don't forget that members can invite their guests along to the film for one-off ticket fees if they wish.
The screening will commence at 7.30pm.
