The participants of the educational project “Didgoreli” held a presentation of mini-films created on the theme of the unknown Bolnisi at the Goethe Institute.
“Unknown Bolnisi” is another educational component of “Didgoreli”, which involves the preparation of a series of videos about historical facts and monuments little known to the public by young people involved in the school competition.
The author of “Didgoreli”, historian Levan Zhvania, spoke to the guests invited to the presentation about the materials found for the project and recalled a number of interesting historical facts. According to him, the work on the mini-documentaries turned out to be quite time-consuming, but the result was worth it and the videos aroused great interest of the viewers:
“The beloved and centuries-old Bolnisi preserves a number of important historical facts and little-known cultural heritage monuments. The people of Didgori-Bolnisi, who are in love with the history of these unknown people, facts and important monuments, together with us, searched and processed archive materials, and we offer the results of their research in the form of mini-films to the public, where the narrators are also our Didgori residents.“, said Levan Zhvania.
The 6 mini-films shot in the framework of “Unknown Bolnisi” combine interesting information about the ancient inscriptions of Bolnisi Sioni, the 13th century historical monument Tsughrugasheni, Sulkhan-Saba Orbeliani’s younger brother, bishop and scientist Nikoloz Orbeliani, Bolnisi Bishop Davit and the Germans living in Katarinenfeld.
“We are very happy that, despite the pandemic, Didgoreli managed to hold a number of competitive tours, conferences and other educational events in 2021. I think that the series of mini films turned out to be particularly interesting and it is important that this product was prepared with the participation of Didgore residents themselves and will be distributed among young people.“, says RMG’s Public Relations Manager, Natali Nozadze.
