2:34 pm
i'm joined by the writer director of the film. first of all welcome a new must be very excited about the oscar. thank you for having me and. i believe if we can go park the oscars a next february we might get there but let's go back a few years because i believe this particular incident was inspired to make this film tell us about it. in 201315 young kids in georgia decided to hold george's 1st pride parade. in tbilisi the capital and they were there was a counterattack organize a counter demonstration organized and they were attacked and the images you know are cable out on all the news channels and i saw it in sweden and i thought. i didn't like what i saw and i thought you know i should do something about that
2:35 pm
about that topic so that was sort of like the inspiration for the film and then sort of give us a brief synopsis of what the film's about well basically i would say it's a coming of age story about a young downstair at the georgia national ensemble which is a very strict conservative. place. and they he you know falls in love with another guy and it sort of becomes like a catalyst for him to i think in the end discover his own artistry i think you know it's a film about breaking the norm sort of yeah ok and i mean this seems to be george or seems to be the seems real still to the gay rights is this why you made the film in the georgian language yeah i mean i think the setting of the story certainly you know if it had been said in sweden it would have been the same story so you know there was something there that i wanted to. discover and sort of delve into.
2:36 pm
georgia you know it's sort of complicated i think it's a very polarized country at the moment and it's very divided on one and you know you have the younger generation who's very you know. liberal and they really you know one something else and then on the other hand you have sort of a you know there's the lists or whatever you call them let's see another clip and this is where the head of the daunce academy appears to men sort of question the main actor that. god did it. because one is censored. with until she lived. parody cartoon. yeah.
2:37 pm
constitutes. a steady stream. you can feel the tension. i believe you when you went to film in georgia you have sort of give the authorities there another script will give them another impression of what the film was about i mean we didn't you know actually give them a script but you know we had to film in some place you know were a little tricky to get into had they known exactly what the film was about so you know we had another official plot for the film that we were some sort of you know. in some places and in some places you know we could be totally open again it's about the division i was talking about and did you actually have problems if you have problems when you were that we did that we did fortunately we know.
2:38 pm
some locations where we're supposed to film would you know just suddenly disappear and you know we couldn't film that as they were renovating and things like that so you know we never nobody officially told us you can't be here because you're making an l.g. bt film but. just quickly want to mention benny andersson of abba was one of the producers but is he interested in georgian traditional dogs . i think he probably is his you know he's a patron of the arts. i know that he actually 20 years ago did a george cd with polyphonic choir singing so he has a little it is but actually it's son who is the producer from from. well he's a good producer. a lot for the film you cross your fingers for the all screens you very much. thank you very much about so great film you've got thank you robin.

concepts would hardly be feasible without plenty of help from the people after. the buildings are made of some 3000 rolls of tape and 23000 boxes far fewer than bricks in the originals they take just one week of construction not much to build an entire city but it did require months of planning and precision drawings much like an architect with. the 46 year old artist's favorite piece is the tower. this is a replica inspired by st joseph's church in the mail every few years the germans now have to limit the limits we're going to build it's about 26 meters 26 and a half almost 27 meters high. the cardboard city stands for just 2 days. then the big demolition operation

2:51 pm
could face for processing now the activists who've been arrested or accused of taking part in the an authorized protest and inciting illegal protests and the concern over that is so great you organizers of the march for its march have called it off citing the physical and legal safety of those protesters having said that they the people that have been arrested a nazi leaders of this protest movement they were back in 2014 now although this movement is largely leaderless so i think what we'll see is these protests will continue now continue to be organized by individuals who are organizing these separate protests weekend after weekend here in hong kong so it seems the police are cracking down harder how are the people of hong kong reacting to the news of these arrests. well there's a lot of anger on social media at the moment that's also in light of the fact that 2 activists will say beaten up yesterday. apparently with baseball bats no rest
2:52 pm
have been made in that case that's something that's really concerns people there is the general feeling that hong kong authorities are cracking down on them a lot of people do you appear to want to take to the streets again to voice their anger but this protest i has been banned and now cooled off but some are your thoughts not to say that people won't take to the streets anyway and of course on monday we've got that massive strike that's planned which sectors school students and university students are also planning to take part in say we are going to see another few days of unrest here in hong kong ok the police though have issued a ban all marching and all busy assemblies does the law set things up for another massive confrontation. potentially of course we have seen protesters coming out despite the fact she is have been banned was interesting about this particular ban though is that this is
2:53 pm
a ban on a rally organized by the civil human rights fronts that the people behind the massive peaceful rally are you this once month which they say $1700000.00 people took part in that went that proceeded without any real binding and then they were behind the big process that happened back in june so we are expecting people who despite this ban to take to the streets once again but of course with heightened concern about what that could mean for them legally and of course physically as well protesters here say that police are becoming increasingly violent in their handling of these protests. thank you very much t.w. charlotte chelsea fill in hong kong. some of the other stories making news around the world today british opposition leader jeremy corcoran says he will introduce a bill to block prime minister bourse show. from suspending parliament until mid october just before britain's planned exit from the e.u. more than a 1000000 people have signed an online position opposing the suspension which
