ALTZANEY

(Directed by Nino Orjonikidze, Vano Arsenishvili, Georgia 2009, 30 min., Chechen with English subtitles)

The people of Pankisi Gorge believe that all the important issues of their lives and deaths should be solved through the mediation of a favored authority. Altzaney is a woman who interferes in other people’s lives and takes responsibility for it. She mediates between conflicting sides and the two worlds. Altzaney is the only woman trusted to take care of the dead.
What makes her so distinguished and authoritative in a totally patriarchal environment, and what is the price she has to pay for it? Altzaney gives an insight into a unique community of Pankisi Gorge.
