A WAR film will be screened tonight at the Bahrain Cinema Club in Juffair.
Set in 1992 during the growing conflict between Georgia and Abkhazian separatists in the wake of the Soviet Union’s dissolution, the storyline of Tangerines follows two Estonian immigrant farmers who decide to remain in Georgia long enough to harvest their tangerine crop.
When the war comes to their doorsteps, Ivo takes in two wounded soldiers from opposite sides.
The fighters vow to kill each other when they recover, but their extended period of recovery has a humanising effect that might transcend ethnic divides.
Tangerines, a 2013 drama, was nominated for an Oscar and a Golden Globe for Best Foreign Film.
It will be screened at 7pm and for more details call 39682323.
