Circe – Experimental Platform for Dance and Theatre hosts
Dir: Celia Rowlson-Hall
In this modern-day vision of Mother Mary’s pilgrimage, a woman crosses the scorched landscape of the American Southwest. Reinvented and told entirely through movement, the film playfully deconstructs the role of this woman, who encounters a world full of bold characters that are alternately terrifying and sublime. MA is a journey into the visceral and the surreal, interweaving ritual, performance, and the body as sculpture. The absence of dialogue stirs the senses, and leads us to imagine a new ending to this familiar journey. The virgin mother gives birth to our saviour, but is also challenged to save herself
Film screenings will be held in Amirani cinema from 31st of January to 7 February.
Screenings are supported by Women’s Fund in Georgia.
In the framework of the charity campaign ‘Beyond the Shelter’ Women’s fund in Georgia continues to raise funds for the Anti-Violence Network of Georgia’s shelter/crisis centre, which provides emergency shelter for the victims of domestic violence. The aim of the charity led campaign is to provide financial support for the construction of an eco-friendly greenhouse on the premises of the centre. Once constructed, the greenhouse will provide organic produce for the residents of the centre and create employment. Working in the greenhouse will also create opportunities for therapeutic treatments.
The amount received from ticket sales will be transferred to the shelter.
