a debilitating eye disease. As his condition worsens, a surreal visual world opens up to him
causing him to question his life’s choices, his career, and his marriage to an increasingly
frustrated Nutsa (Antonia Campbell-Hughes) who struggles with her loyalties to her
husband and the realities of daily survival.
As his condition worsens, Irakli meets Nino (Andreja Pejic), a beautiful artist who lives alone
in the forest. She becomes his artistic muse and they form a deep connection that turns
from fascination to infatuation to love. They speak in poetic language and understand each
other completely. Meanwhile Nutsa works three jobs and is influenced by her new boss, a
socialite from America who similarly is trapped in a tumultuous marriage.
JONATHAN P. SHAW
raised in small-town America. After high school, he
went to Boston to attend the School of the Museum
of Fine Arts. Shortly after that, he planned a three-
year trip to Europe to work on his art, but didn’t take
to it and left after 15 days. In 1977, he released his
first film Eraserhead (1977), which, although not
critically acclaimed, was noticed by many people,
including Francis Ford Coppola, who was rumored
to have screenings of it for his cast and crew on the
Apocalypse Now (1979) set.

Velvet(1986), Lost Highway (1997) and Mulholland

gained the reputation of one of the foremost auteurs
in the film industry, and one of the few living auteurs
who continually defies cinematic convention.
His films continually represent his ideal that films,
representing life, should be complex, and in some
cases, inexplicable. Due to his decisive innovation
and the beautiful confusion of his films, he will always
be recognized as if not one of the greatest film-makers,
one of the most original. Lynch is an innovative director,
and even if his films aren’t necessarily realistic, they are
real in their representation of what life is: a confusing,
irrational series of events that have little purpose, and
one makes one’s own interpretation of each event,
giving life one’s own purpose.
Lynch wants his films to resonate emotionally and
instinctively, and for every person to relate and find
its own understanding. David Lynch is original. He
has done things in film-making that D.W. Griffith did
in his day. David Lynch will never stop making beauty
on the screen.
