Georgian Day: The plot of NAMME and the menu of the typical dinner
Namme is a movie directed by Zaza Khalvashi (2017). It tells the story of Alì’s family and the mission it has inherited: to take care of a magic fountain with the power of recovering ill villagers. Unfortunately, The mission success is made more difficult by the construction of a power plant and climate changes. “I wrote the script in 2010 when I was still looking for fundings to realize it. In 2016, once I got the economic support of the National Film Center, I officially started working on it” explained the director. The movie doesn’t put under the spotlight well-known actors, but emerging ones. It was presented to the Tokyo FIlm Festival in 2007 and today it is considered by the critic as “a pearl of contemporary Georgian cinema”. After the screening of the movie, we will move to the lounge room of the cinema where we will be surrounded by delicious Georgian specialties. We will taste Pkhali, a traditional dish of vegetables, herbs and vinegar, Khachapuri, a typical bread with flour, yoghurt and cheese, and also aubergines, spinach and many more vegetables to please also vegan people.
