War and peace

By Mark Pritchett in Local People

CINEMA Obscura’s last film in its current season is the Oscar-nominated and critically acclaimed Tangerines (15).

The film is set in 1992 during the conflict between Georgia and Abkhazian separatists in the wake of the Soviet Union’s dissolution.

This compassionate tale focuses on two Estonian immigrant farmers who decide to remain in Georgia long enough to harvest their tangerine crop.

Against a beautiful landscape defiled by war, this poetic film makes an eloquent statement for peace.

Tangerines is screened on Sunday (April 23) at Wiveliscombe Primary School Hall in North Street. Doors open 7pm and the film starts at 7.30pm – guest membership is £5.
