Then they say he’s crazy

Synopsis: We get to see a day in life of Irakli, a georgian sculptor who strongly holds on to old values, and his meeting with contemporary modern art.

The documentary is about Irakli who fled Georgia during the 1990s due to an insecure and unappreciated future lying ahead of him as an artist in his home country. Irakli represents an artist with an uncompromising character and in this documentary we follow his story told by himself. We get a glimpse into his daily life in Riksheim, France, and get to hear his opinion on modern contemporary art among other things.
