The Georgian drama about a father and son has collected as many as three nominations for the festival – Best Actor, Best Film and Best Screenplay.

TBILISI, 18 Jun – Sputnik. The film “Brighton 4” by Georgian director Levan Koguashvili, in which legendary theater and film artist Kakha Kavsadze played his last role, received three awards at the Tribeca Film Festival in New York.

The Tribeca International Film Festival was founded in 2001 by Hollywood stars Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal and has been held annually in New York since then. This year it became the first major festival to be held in the presence of spectators. The 2021 Tribeca International Film Festival featured 64 films from 23 countries.

At the festival, the film received an award in three nominations at once – the best film; Georgian wrestler, five-time world champion and two-time Olympic champion Levan Tediashvili won the Best Actor nomination, and the feature film won the Best Screenplay award.

“We took the main prizes. We are taking them to Georgia. I am glad and congratulate the Georgian film community,” said the director.

Koguashvili recalled that the role of Kakha Kavsadze in this film was the last for the artist, which is a special event for him, as well as a great responsibility.

“This is a very interesting role, created in his style – eccentric, realistic, very acting and very human, as only he could. The film tells about the relationship between father and son. For me, the story of this film is also special because of my personal tragedy, so how I lost my father during the coronavirus pandemic, “Koguashvili said.

According to the director, the film “Brighton 4” received high marks from critics and the press at the festival. Soon the picture will be presented at ten more festivals. As for the screening of the film in Georgia, its premiere is planned for the fall.

The plot of the drama “Brighton 4” by Levan Koguashvili is centered on the uneasy relationship between his son and father from Georgia. The son emigrates to the United States, and tells his father that he has settled well and is studying.

When the father, suspecting something was wrong, comes to his son in America, he sees that his son’s living conditions are not at all like the “American dream.” The son works as a loader, is in poverty and his life is not easy.

The main part of “Brighton 4” was filmed in New York with the support of the National Cinema Center of Georgia. The film is a joint production of Georgia, Bulgaria, USA and Russia. One of the co-producers of the fourth Brighton is the Public Television and Radio Broadcasting Company of Georgia, and the co-financing is from the Kartu Charitable Foundation.

Cooperation between Levan Koguashvili and the Tribeca International Film Festival began in 2006, when the director presented the short film “Duty” at the film festival.
