Director: Zaza Urushadze, Estonia / Georgia 2015, 83 mins, 15

"Engaging, intelligent anti-war storytelling. This movie from Georgian writer-director Zara Urushadze had an Oscar nomination for best foreign film … it more than deserves its UK release now: a tremendous, old-fashioned anti-war film, by turns touching, moving and suspenseful." Peter Bradshaw The Guardian

Academy Award nominated for best foreign film, Tangerines speaks powerfully for humanity and peace. In 1992 during the Georgian Abkhazian conflict, an Estonian immigrant tangerine farmer takes in two wounded enemy soldiers. The film follows their transformation from hatred to respect and understanding.

"This remarkable piece of antiwar cinema honors its theme, and the movie medium." Wall Street Journal
