Nachschlag


Nun ist das schöne Festival leider schon wieder vorbei. Gestern hatten wir nochmal Karten für einen bemerkenswerten Streifen aus Georgien. Keep Smiling handelt von der Farce eines Schönheitswettbewerbs für Mütter im georgischen Fernsehen. Unglaublich, was sich da so abspielt!





"Keep Smiling is a heartfelt story, a vast reservoir of pain but told with satiric humour, a tale of six Georgian women taking part in a beauty contest of mothers. The media and organizers exploit the participants' human tragedies: the lives of Georgian women, the Abkhazian war, patriotism. The film is about how easy it is to become a puppet in somebody´s hands and how hard it is to retain self-respect. Is it right that the end justifies the means? And does winning at the price of lost dignity make one happy?" (Rusudan Chkonia)
