Rezo is a movie told and painted by Rezo Gabriadze, a prolific Georgian artist, writer and creator of Marionette theatre. This autobiographical animated documentary raises questions and ideas about the deep humanity and kindness found during the uneasy times after WWII. Rezo himself is revisited by the vivid memories of when he was a lonely and shy boy. Surreal and abstract, his dreams see Stalin and Lenin meet him at school, frogs teach him to smoke and Leo Tolstoi guards him at the library. Rezo’s is a story of the preservation of his unique and innocent sensitivity and his ability to find beauty within the madness. Rezo is producer Timur Bekmambetov’s second nomination as a producer for Best Animated Feature Film.
