Ramodenime interviu pirad sakitkhebze Neskol’ko interv’iu po lichnym voprosam. 1979. USSR. Directed by Lana Gogoberidze. In Georgian; English subtitles. 95 min.
With Sofiko Chiaureli. Sofiko, a young newspaper employee, is passionately involved in her work interviewing people who have submitted complaint letters to the editor. One of the women Sofiko interviews is her mother, and the pair’s onscreen relationship strongly resembles the tragic early life of the director and her mother, making this a very personal film for Gogoberidze. A bold mixture of documentary and social-psychological drama—and the first film to make mention of Stalin’s camps—Several Interviews on Personal Matters makes powerful statements about women, work, family, and marriage that earned it international acclaim as the first feminist film of the Soviet cinema.
