Georgian Film Series

'Pirimze' by Sophia Tabatadze

Documentary, Georgia/D 2011-2012, 40 min.
(English Language)

The film is about social and visual changes affecting PIRIMZE, a six-floor edifice from the Soviet era, built especially to house repair and maintenance services. The theme unfolds to a broader picture and shows what has been happening in Georgia since the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Starting as a curious journey through the labyrinths of PIRIMZE and observing fascinating skills performed by the craftsmen who used to work there, the story moves beyond the facade of the newly renovated business centre "Pirimze Plaza" which replaced PIRIMZE and questions the need and motives of this transformation.
