Blackbird Blackbird Blackberry

  •   Elene Naveriani
  •   Switzerland, Georgia

Etero adores her independent life. Living alone in a small Georgian village, the 48-year-old shopkeeper is perfectly content on her own. The pangs of love strike at the most unexpected times, however, and Etero’s world is turned upside down when she begins to fall for a delivery man from a nearby town.

Lead actor Eka Chavleishvili plays Etero with tentative grace, imbuing the character with tenderness and empathy as she’s forced to choose between the quiet days she cherishes and this unexplored alternative of passion and romance. Filled with effortless charm and directed with a light touch, Blackbird Blackbird Blackberry is a lyrical look at the unpredictable impulses of the human heart.
