Cannes: Film and Music Ent. Pacts with Independent Film Studio for U.K.-Georgian Co-Production ‘Shindisi’

13 May 2016 11:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Mike Downey’s Film and Music Entertainment has teamed with Independent Film Studios, 20 Steps and Lakumi in the former Soviet republic of Georgia to produce U.K.-Georgian co-production “Shindisi.” Los Angeles-based director Nick Agiashvili will direct the project, based on a true story of the Russian invasion of Georgia.

Agiashvili, best known for his “Tbilisi, I Love You,” “A Green Story” and “The Harsh Life of Veronica Lambert,” will direct from a screenplay by Irakli Solomavnashvili.

Pic takes place in the village of Shindisi during the August War, which changes the life of an ordinary Georgian peasant forever. In the heart of Shinidisi, a heavily-armed Russian military unit occupying the village breaks the promise of a peaceful corridor given to Georgians and opens fire on Georgian soldiers lured into the ambush. One part of the Georgian soldiers take fire on themselves enabling the 25 fellow warriors to leave the battlefield. »
