Dede by Georgian director Mariam Bakacho Khatchvani is based on true events that took place during the Georgian Civil War (1988-1993). The film is set in the mountainous region of Svanetia in Northwest Georgia where the Svans, a people far removed from the modern world, still live in a society deeply steeped in tradition. This patriarchal society revolves around arranged marriages, pride and customs that dictate the code of daily life. Dede tells the story of Dina, a young woman promised by her draconian grandfather to David, one of the soldiers returning from the civil war. A marriage arranged by two families cannot be broken as it would bring dishonor and bloodshed. Dina does not love David and falls for his handsome friend. Will Dina be able to follow her heart? Will David accept Dina’s love for another man? In this hostile and conservative environment, Dina’s dream of true love is a menace to her community’s ancient ways. 97 minutes. In Georgian with English subtitles. Film website: http://www.corinthfilms.com/films/dede/
