Georgian film “Brighton 4th” has won in the nomination for Best Picture at the Asian World Film Festival.
“Georgia, which is at the crossroads of Europe and Asia, is always a gathering place for cultures, and we are ready to accept this cultural influence,” said Koguashvili, director of Brighton 4th.
The Asian World Film Festival is an annual film festival based in Los Angeles, California, founded in 2015.
Brighton 4th is Levan Koguashvili’s third full-length film. Brighton 4th tells the insightful story of Georgians in emigration, a tragicomedy about the fate of people who go to America hoping to fulfill their dreams. Kakhi, a 70-year-old Georgian wrestler, travels from Tbilisi to New York to help his gambling-addicted son solve problems and pay off debts. The main role is played by the Olympic champion, wrestler Levan Tediashvili. The main part of the Brighton 4th was shot in New York.
Brighton 4th is to compete for the nomination of the 2022 International Feature Film at the American Film Academy on behalf of Georgia.
