About the event

AN OLD GEORGIAN SONG      

Otar Iosseliani, 1969 (20 minutes)

FUNERAL CHANTS FROM THE GEORGIAN CAUCASUS  

Hugo Zemp, 2007 (21 minutes)

This double-feature pairs two short ethnographic films exploring the remarkable folk singing practices of the transcontinental country of Georgia. Entirely by ear, the singers create unique and haunting forms of harmony and counterpoint that are woven into their rituals of mourning and remembrance.
