TANGERINES

AX1 Films is pleased to announce the acquisition of Oscar® & Golden Globe® nominee, TANGERINES, written, directed and co-produced by Zaza Urushadze.

Set in 1992, during the growing conflict between Georgia and Abkhazian separatists in the wake of the Soviet Union’s dissolution, this compassionate story focuses on two Estonian immigrant farmers who decide to remain in Georgia long enough to harvest their tangerine crop. When the fighting arrives at their doorsteps, Ivo (played by legendary Estonian actor Lembit Ulfsak) along with friend Margus (Elmo Nüganen), treat two wounded soldiers from opposite sides, Ahmed (Giorgi Nakhashidze) and Niko (Mikheil Meskhi). During their extended period of convalescence under the administration of Ivo, they are forced not only to confront  the reasons that fuel their hatred for each other, but also the conflict which rages around them.

Set against a beautiful landscape defiled by war, this film makes an eloquent statement for peace and the futility of bloodshed at the hands of racial and ethnic divide.

A hit on the festival circuit, winning numerous international awards and critical praise, TANGERINES will be released in UK cinemas from 18 September 2015.
