About Dead Souls’ Vacation

UK Premiere
Keko Chelidze, Georgia, 2020, Georgian with English subtitles, 66m

Filmed predominantly in their claustrophobic one-room apartment, this intimate observational documentary chronicles the turbulent relationship between Levan, a once popular Georgian musician, and his elderly mother Lamara, as they attempt to co-exist.

An engaging and touching film, it draws attention not only to the complexities of family relationships, but also to the intense hardship that artists can face when going through difficult times. As the cumulative impact of poverty, isolation, addiction, and caring takes its toll on his mental health, can Levan overcome years of setbacks and rediscover his potential?

Content notes: alcohol addiction, references to drug use

Watch Dead Souls' Vacation at INDY On Demand. Screening 17-23 May for audiences worldwide.

Join us for a Zoom Q&A with Keko Chelidze and producer Elene Margvelashvili at 8pm on Thursday 20 May. Free via Eventbrite
