Estonian film “Tangerines” is a story of awakening humanity in the midst of violence, told with intimacy and elegance by Georgian film director and screenwriter Zaza Urushadze.

Nominated for an Academy Award and Golden Globe Award for Best Foreign Language film in 2015, “Tangerines” is the spare yet haunting tale of an older Estonian man who cares for two wounded soldiers from opposite sides of the 1990s-era war in Georgia. The film reveals compassion to be the ultimate response to centuries of political, cultural and ethnic conflict, a compellingly relevant message for contemporary audiences.
