Sinopsis

What is inside these ancient songs? Otar Iosseliani travels the most mountainous landscape of his native Georgia natal with this question. What he essentially wants to know is what will disappear if these ancient voices are not preserved. 

In his fiction, there is always a glass of wine and an ancient song to create an atmosphere for the few moments of pleasure for his characters. The documentary, Georgian Ancient Songs is enjoyment from start to finish, starting off with a toast and ending with a song.  A chorus of screams without instrumentation combined with psalmodies and melodies that come from the nights of all times tracing the soundtrack that the maestro marks with a firm and poetic beat. Therefore, he shows us that within the ancient songs, there is an old man sharpening his scythe, a girl looking from the other side of time, stables hiding the secret of animals and mountains that touch the sky with their snow. 20 minutes of song in black and white, 20 minutes of prints of the downfall referred to in the old Georgian proverb: when the tree is rootless, the ants seize it.
