Let Us Flow

63 min, 4K, sound, UK/Georgia, 2023.

A long poem to the mountains, Let us Flow explores the isolated mountainous region of Tusheti, in Northeast Georgia.
The film considers the importance of ritual, the maintenance of community ties, and how modernisation and migration
are transforming rural landscapes. Shot over several years, Let us Flow uses innovative audio-visual techniques and sound
composition to make visible the symbolic and physical division of sacred spaces within the community and offers a nuanced
perspective on a culture where ancestral shrines are only accessible to men.

In MADOLI Medoidze’s storytelling traverses different layers of rich symbolic imagination of this tiny nomad community,
while her camera documents everyday fleeting detail. Her predicament as a returning migrant and a woman puts her in a
peculiar position of both insider and outsider, which she expresses through framing and juxtaposition of
different image modalities.

“But then something changes. Just as the man’s eyes flit from offscreen directly into the camera, the music cuts off
mid-trill. We hear the snorts of the horse, the gentle hubbub of other people talking and laughing in the background.
Everything changes, slightly. A spell is lifted, or rather a set of expectations is dispelled;
the fairytale gives way to something funnier and stranger.”
