With Paris and New York City getting auteur-driven portraits with “Paris, je t’aime” and “New York, I Love You,” those movies have inspired producers and filmmakers from around the world to develop their own city-driven projects. And while omnibus films have been percolating in places like Rio, Shanghai, Jerusalem, Berlin and Sydney over the past few years, it’s Tbilisi in Georgia that have come out of the gate with the next effort.
We’ve got the exclusive first trailer for “Tbilisi, My City,” which brings together some interesting talent to tell a variety of stories set in the Georgian capital. Starring Malcolm McDowell, Ron Perlman, George Finn, Ed O’Ross, Sarah Dumont and more, the handful of shorts blend fiction and documentary, and were written and directed entirely by Georgian talent, with each filmmaker telling their own personal story with heartbreak, friendship, escape and more all figuring into the tales.
David Agiashvili (who also created the project) is producing alongside Ketevan Galdavadze and Nika Agiashvili through Storyman Pictures and Iberia Film. Glen Reynolds and Zac Reeder from Circus Road Films will represent the movie worldwide. No distribution for the film is in place yet for the picture, but you can get a taste of Tbilisi below.
