“Georgian Bread” – International campaign to support new Georgian movie is launched
23 November, 2015
Georgian film director Katie Orjonikidze-Casey has launched an international campaign on indiegogo.com website to raise fund for her movie called “Georgian Bread”.

“Two generations of hardworking men try to find a balance between dedication to tradition and profitability.

Legendary Georgian actor Kakhi Kavsadze plays George, an immigrant who, despite his age and distance from his country, tries to work hard and keep up with his traditions. The story takes place in Brooklyn, in a city with its own set of
rules, where we find young businessman Michael struggling to keep his bakery business going. Even though he deeply loves and respects George, his baker, he has the opportunity to swap his cozy little Georgian bakery for a sushi place that will be more profitable for his business.

Why this film is important

In the globalization era, this story demonstrates that people of different generations, cultures, and languages can still have a love and understanding for each other. We find genuine warmth in George's character for his boss Michael, who in turn has the greatest respect for George's culture and profession. This aspect of the story is relatable for anyone of any nationality struggling to hold on to their traditions in the face of modern progress. The thread of hope and belief that runs through the narrative shows how relevant these values still are in our society.

Without your support we can’t bake “Georgian Bread”

By supporting “Georgian Bread” you are supporting an international crew of independent filmmakers, who put their hard work and dedication into making this project happen. Now they need your help in the post-production phase to bring the film to life!

What this money will be used for

1. Original music score
2. Color correction
3. Sound Design
4. Poster design
5. Submitting to festivals
6. Organizing screenings
