No dialogues
Mountain mist unveils a village in Georgia: people wake up, the landscape emerges, and ancient voices take over the soft morning sounds. A series of traditional chants, performed collectively, offer us a glimpse into the oral tradition and everyday life of a rural community. A fragmentary portrait of identity and social bonds through music that evolved over generations and was preserved alongside a changing society.
