A Bitter Lesson

  • Georgia

One morning director of the school near the Abkhazian border announces that the school's principal learning language will soon become Russian. Both the students and the teachers meet this news in different ways - some with tears, some with laughs, but mostly with confusion.

This film is not currently online :(

But no worries. There are more just like it in our new program.
