Newly restored three masterful short films (The Wedding [1964], Umbrella [1967] and Musicians [1969]) of renowned Georgian film director Mikheil Kobakhidze, will be presented  to a British audience for the first time. The films are related to the golden age of Georgian cinema, known for its great creativity and irony. In contrast to 1960s, the final film of the program No, Pal!
