The Dazzling Light of Sunset


CATALOGUE TEXT
Salomé Jashi is shooting in the provincial town of Tsalenjikha, following the paths of Dariko, a reporter who covers giant owls, fashion shows and funerals for the local television station. The people who cross the local journalist’s – and indirectly the camera’s – path are mortifyingly anxious about their public image, so much so that one would be tempted to smirk if it wasn’t for the deplorable changing conditions. So the ever present comedy remains subdued, but always close to Georgian everyday life. Because the latter constantly seems to produce “errors connected to ugliness” and could thus have been the model for Aristotle’s definition of comedy.
