The rich inner world of the renowned Georgian screenwriter, artist and puppeteer Rezo Gabriadze is as fantastic as the animation into which he has poured this story of his life. Rezo’s director son, Leo Gabriadze, who previously made the hit horror film Unfriended(2014), leaves it to his father to talk about a life suffused with magical thinking.
Rezo will be presented with the animated film Tweet-Tweet, filmmaker Zhanna Bekmambetova's cinematic debut, an exquisitely rendered portrait of the life cycle brought lovingly to life via a largely silent, Pixar-like journey of the tightrope that is, in many ways, the way we live our lives as we toss n' turn, wobble and stride our way through fears and losses, joys and triumphs at times precariously and at times with remarkable boldness.
Rezo is a movie told and painted by Rezo Gabriadze, Georgian artist, writer and creator of Marionette theatre. The movie is an autobiographical animated documentary questioning ideas of deep humanity, kindness and heartiness during uneasy times after the 2nd World War.
