MoMA’s Discovering Georgian Cinema festival (presented in D.C. through a partnership with the National Gallery of Art) closes next week, and it’s bringing out the big guns: two films by Academy Award-winner Nino Kirtadze, who will be present for both screenings at the AFI Silver Theatre. Monday night’s selection, The Pipeline Next Door, is a documentary set in the Borjomi valley, home to a famous mineral water spring, through which British Petroleum began building an oil pipeline in 2003. Kirtadze, a former journalist and war correspondent, carefully depicts one village’s struggle against the pipeline’s construction amid post-Soviet land-ownership disputes and the temptation of American dollars.
