My guest today is the Georgian filmmaker Levan Koguashvili who has made a spectacular new film called “Brighton 4th“, Georgia’s official submission to the 94th Academy Awards®. Shot by Oscar-nominated cinematographer Phedon Papamichael (“Nebraska”, “The Trial of the Chicago 7”) and set within the Georgian emigré community of Brighton Beach, Brooklyn, the film received its world premiere at the 2021 Tribeca Festival where it won three major awards in international competition — Best Film, Best Actor and Best Screenplay — and also recently won the award for Best Film at the inaugural edition of the Red Sea International Film Festival. “Brighton 4th” will open in New York on Friday, January 28 (Village East Cinema) and in Los Angeles on Friday, February 11 (Laemmle Royal), with a national rollout to follow.
