Brighton 4th – A man tries to help is son in the new drama from Georgia

In this portrait of parental sacrifice and the love of a father for his son, former wrestler Kakhi (played by real-life Olympic champion Levan Tediashvili) embarks on a journey from his home in the Republic of Georgia to visit his son Soso (Giorgi Tabidze) in the Russian-speaking neighborhood of Brighton Beach, Brooklyn. There he finds him living in a shabby boarding house populated by a colorful group of fellow Georgian immigrants. Soso is not studying medicine, as Kakhi believed, but is working for a moving company and has accrued a $14,000 gambling debt to a local Russian mob boss. Kakhi sets his mind to helping his hapless son out of his debt, leading to situations as often comic as they are dire.

Lensed by Oscar®-nominated cinematographer Phedon Papamichael (The Trial of the Chicago 7, Nebraska), BRIGHTON 4TH won three major awards at the Tribeca Festival – Best International Film, Actor and Screenplay – and is Georgia’s official submission to the 94th Academy Awards®.

Directed by Levan Koguashvili, the film opens at Village East Cinema in NYC on 28th January 2022.
