This extraordinary DVD premiere of four rare films by acclaimed Georgian filmmaker Otar Iosseliani takes us on a whimsical voyage of self-discovery. Before his self-exile to direct films in France, Iosseliani's work was frequently banned, shelved, or restricted by Soviet authorities. The early films on this DVD include APRIL, the film picked to showcase Iosselianis talent at this years Cannes. Iosselianis contemporary fables of modern life and traditional values have been compared to the classic comedies of French master Jacques Tati. Shrewdly whimsical and filmed with a poetic casualness, Iosselianis universe is one of joyous pessimism.
