CIRCLE film to premiere at Visions du Réel!

Updated: Apr 15

Dear friends and collegues,

Some amazing news! EVER SINCE I KNEW MYSELF will have its world première at Vision Du Reel in a couple of days!

We share our excitement with Maka Gogaladze, director and writer of this amazing project.

The film was developed in CIRCLE 2020 and presented in the CIRCLE Showcase @ Cannes Docs - Marchè du Film in 2023, where it won the Alphapanda Marketing Award.

The movie follows Maka, the daughter of a strict maths teacher and high-maintenance mother, on her journey around post-Soviet Georgia to observe children in the process of education. This quest is accompanied by her intimate conversation with her mother Nino. Two women of different generations, with different experiences and clashing perspectives, reflect on parenting, education and systems of power.

EVER SINCE I KNEW MYSELF is produced by Maka Gogaladze for Georgian production company Formo Production and Anke Petersen and Lilian Tietjen for Jyoti Film in Germany.

In addition, the film received the IBF Classic – Production & Post-Production grant from the prestigious IDFA Bertha Fund.

Huge congratulations to our dear alumna for her achievements!

So happy that another CIRCLE project is starting its festival life!

Maka Gogaladze (CIRCLE 2020 alumna)
