With this debut fiction feature, Levan Koguashvili has not only vaulted to the front ranks of Georgian filmmakers, but has taken a place of distinction among directors from former Soviet republics. A realistic drama that is as artful as it is down-and-dirty, Street Days shows us contemporary Tbilisi through the eyes of a struggling junkie named Checkie (non-professional Guga Kotetishvili, a revelation), who has managed to maintain a modicum of moral integrity in an environment where criminality and gangsterism are as common as garbage in the streets.

Recently divorced with a son in school and a high-school friend who has made good in local government, Checkie spends his time avoiding people he owes money to while trying to make the best of a bad situation. When the son of his rich friend asks him to score some drugs for him, Checkie is at a crossroads. Spiking his tale with doses of deadpan humor, Koguashvili recognizes the unsustainable nature and downright absurdity of this world, where everything—including your soul—can be bought or sold. That he manages to make his subject compelling viewing is a tribute to his skill. Winner, Best Film, Wiesbaden Go East Film Festival.
