A Room of My Own

A Room of My Own

Directed by Ioseb “Soso” Bliadze • 2022 • Georgia

One of the breakout hits of recent Georgian cinema, A Room of My Own is a quietly revolutionary take on female friendship and the passage to self-emancipation. Co-writer Taki Mumladze stars as Tina, a shy young divorcee with a troubled past who finds herself unexpectedly forced into sharing a small Tbilisi apartment with brash, hard-partying Megi (Mariam Khundadze). As their relationship thaws into something intimate and mutually supportive, Tina slowly begins to let go of her fears and make sense of her place in the world. Filmed during Covid lockdown in the real-life apartment shared by Mumladze and Khundadze, A Room of My Own is authentic, low-budget filmmaking at its best, anchored by a pair of wonderful leading performances and with timely lessons for Georgian society in the 21st century.
