Mamuliya’s ‘The Criminal Man’ to Be Screened at Venice Film Festival

Following the numerous accomplishments made by Georgian films at various international festivals, a work of yet another Georgian filmmaker is preparing to be introduced to wider audiences at the 76th edition of one of the world's major cinematographic events, the Venice International Film Festival, launched within the framework of Biennale 2019.

The latest film from director Dmitry Mamuliya, entitled ‘The Criminal Man’ (Borotmokmedi), is a Georgian-Russian co-production bringing together a cast of Georgian actors and telling the story of a 25-year-old factory engineer whose life is drastically changed when he witnesses the killing of a prominent sportsman.

At the 11-day festival taking place August 28 – September 7, the work of Mamuliya is set to be screened six times on September 4-6, within the scope of one of the sections of the Biennale named Orizzonti.

‘The Criminal Man’ has been launched as the joint work of Georgia’s Millimeter Film and Russia’s Kinokult. Shooting of the feature took place in Georgia in 2015 and 2016, and was resumed in 2018, after a pause.
