FLMTQ Release 26 - Keep Smiling

In the televised Georgian Mothers' Content, a group of ten very different women compete for the ultimate prize of $25,000 and a family apartment.

Georgian filmmaker Rusudan Chkonia's first feature explores pressing issues of contemporary Georgian society— the enduring scars of a post-civil war nation, economic hardship, and human desperation— through the lens of broadcast television, calling into question the ethics of entertainment itself. Keep Smiling premiered at Venice, Abu Dhabi, and Tallinn Black Nights, and was selected as the Georgian entry for the Best Foreign Language Oscar at the 85th Academy Awards.
