"City of the Sun" awarded in Sarajevo

CITY OF THE SUN by Rati Oneli has received the award for best documentary at the Sarajevo Film Festival. The film which premiered in this year's Forum programme, is a portrait of Chiatur. The Georgian town was once a proud ore-mining centre but today its remaining inhabitants eke out their livelihoods among the ruins of Soviet ambition. Work in the mines, darkness, music and theatre: the post-utopian portrait of life in the city of the sun.
