Hostages (Mdzevlebi)

Part of the European Perspectives Strand


In 1983, a group of young people from socially elite families in Soviet-occupied Georgia planned to escape their closeted world by hijacking a Boeing jet headed to a nearby Russian seaside resort. This powerful and provocative re-telling of their story is an astonishingly thrilling ride from start to finish. Impressively crafted, with authentic period details, and a gripping narrative expertly delivered by a talented ensemble cast, this is a wonderful piece of social commentary told in the style of a truly accomplished thriller.
