DOUBLE ALIENS

DOUBLE ALIENS

A road trip to the eastern borders of Europe: The Georgian photographer Daro Sulakauri and Latvian film director Uģis Olte visit the Samtskhe- Javakheti region in the south of Georgia, with a mostly Armenian population. Caught between borders and ethnicities, no one here has deep roots in this place. For everyone living here, the notion of “homeland” will always be under debate. (Dominik Tschütscher)

UĢIS OLTE, born in 1981, studied mass communication at the University of Latvia in Riga. After years of developing original television formats and making ads, music videos, and short films, Double Aliens is his first documentary feature. He is currently preparing his first fiction feature.
