Taming the Garden

A powerful and anonymous man has developed an unusual hobby. He buys century-old trees, some as tall as 15-storybuildings, from communities along the Georgian coastand has them excavated to collect them for his private garden. In order to transplant trees of such dimensions, the landscape surrounding them is ripped apart and the people living around them are forced to adapt to the disruption. As the film follows this process, it portrays the needs and values of today’s Georgian society and reflects on the theme of forced migration, where "uprooting" is more than a metaphor.
