When the Earth Seems to Be Light (2015)

To accompany Museum of Skateboarding, part three of the Power and Architecture exhibition programme, we’ve joined forces with the House of Vans to present this poetic documentary about modern youth in post-Soviet Georgia.

When the Earth Seems to Be Light
Georgia / Germany, 2015, dir. Salome Machaidze, Tamuna Karumidze and David Meskhi

A coming-of-age documentary about a group of young skaters, artists and musicians in Tbilisi, Republic of Georgia, a city of contradictions and upheavals.

The film provides a close look at the rich world of teenage dreams and sentiments – lost in search of non-existent spots of freedom and romantic states of mind – and at the growing pains of the post-Soviet generation.

Doors: 6:45 pm
Screening: 7:00 pm

Free, booking required.
