Capital Celluloid 2021 — Day 144: Thu Oct 7

What Do We See When We Look at the Sky? (Koberidze, 2021): ICA, 5.30pm

65th LONDON FILM FESTIVAL (6th - 17th October 2021) DAY 2

Every day (from October 6th to October 17th) I will be selecting the London Film Festival choices you have a chance to get tickets for and the movies you are unlikely to see in London very soon unless you go to see them at the Festival. Here is the LFF's main website for the general information you need. Don't worry if some of the recommended films are sold out by the time you read this as there are always some tickets on offer which go on sale 30 minutes before each screening. Here is all the information you need about the best way to get tickets.

This film also screens at BFI Southbank on October 8th at 2.40pm. Full details here

BFI review:
Winner of the FIPRESCI Prize at the Berlin Film Festival, Alexandre Koberidze’s second feature is set in the ancient and atmospheric Georgian town of Kutaisi. After its fairy-tale opening, various mini-narratives develop, including the setting up of an ice cream stall, the football World Cup viewed on TV in various cafes (with dogs among the appreciative fans) and the making of a film about six couples. Koberidze’s poetic assembling of images focuses on the magic of the everyday: hidden rhythms, the absurd, the unnoticed and the unexpected. The chaos around us is, he suggests, only apparent. A cinematic gem, the film’s relaxed pa
ce and friendly atmosphere give it a charm that casts quite a spell.
