“Jara” is our biggest ongoing project.
The movie “Jara” is a one-year journey through the wild nature of Ajara. It tells how bees from the jara hung in the forest see beauty and ruthlessness of nature, people and their intervention, peaceful co-existence or conflict with them; life for mutual use or harm, toil of bees, their fear of predators. Herdsmen, bears, everyday life of village and local bee-keepers. Countryside stories, in which it is difficult to distinguish where the boundary passes between human habitat and wild nature.
In Georgian iara means a specially prepared hollow log that is put up there a tree in the middle of the forest to attract wild bees. Once a year a beekeeper comes to harvest honey.
Premiere Scheduled Dec 2016.
