"In Bloom", Nana Ektimishvili and Simon Gross, 2013 was the last film from this program. 
Set In Tbilisi in 1992 during the civil war which followed Georgian independence from the Soviet Union, this moving film focuses on the lives of two fourteen year old girls from troubled families. It explores themes of disillusioned love, early marriage and oppressive male dominance.
