Oscar and Golden Globe nominated Estonian-Georgian film “Tangerines” will be released in UK cinemas on September 18.

The story is set in 1992, during the growing conflict between Georgia and Abkhazian separatists in the wake of the Soviet Union’s dissolution, focusing on two ethnic Estonian farmers who decide to remain in Georgia long enough to harvest their tangerine crop. When the fighting arrives at their doorsteps, the farmers treat two wounded soldiers from opposite sides.

During their extended period of convalescence, they are forced not only to confront the reasons that fuel their hatred for each other, but also the conflict which rages around them.

“Tangerines” is so far the most successful film involving Estonian filmmakers, notching up tens of international awards since 2013 and earning an Oscar nomination in the Best Foreign Language Film category for the 87th Academy Awards in early 2015.

The leading roles are played by Estonian actors Lembit Ulfsak and Elmo Nüganen, and Georgian actors Giorgi Nakhashidze and Mihhail Meskhi.
