Jackals and Drones, Chronicles of A summer

16min HD, 2016-2018

A Belgian actress arrives in Tbilisi airport to travel to the medieval cave monastery of Vardzia. Her car journey with two non-professional actors drives the narrative forward, while Medoidze’s camera records their encounters with jackals, drones and the Orthodox monks. Parallel to the journey, a mythopoetic personage resembling Medea roams the caves, scorning our obsession with progress and technology.
