Horizon


CATALOGUE TEXT
Everything becomes blood red, the desert is glowing, the man’s face is burning with effort. He is chained to a stone, determinedly pulling the heavy burden along – until he faints. His subconscious sends even redder images, of a modern war with explosions, rolling tanks and rattling machine guns. Dato Kiknavelidze’s animated short film is in chains, like its protagonist: associative links in symbolic colours from whose end, deliberately or inevitably, dangles the Caucasian War of 2008, weighted with the kind of patriotism that has shaped the national narrative as well as Georgia’s toasts for centuries.
