The cast includes Sofiko Chiaureli, Spartak Bagashivily, Giorgi Gegechkori and Medea Japaridze among others.

Every Saturday the institute screens an art house film followed by review and discussions surrounding the film in the presence of an expert. This week’s session will be managed by Farzan Sojoudi, an associate professor at Tehran Art University.
