Friday Beyeler: Georgian film night

Friday Beyeler
A screening of the 1930 documentary “Buba” by Nutsa Gogoberidze (1902–1966), one of Georgia's first female filmmakers, awaits the audience at our Georgian film night. For a long time lost and banished from film history, “Buba” is a pioneering documentary about the remote mountainous region of Racha in north-western Georgia during the Soviet era. After an introductory talk by Daniel Baumann, guest curator of the “Niko Pirosmani” exhibition, the 39-minute silent film will be shown continuously until 9 p.m.

The introductory talk will be held in German.
Venue: Renzo-Piano-Saal
