A long feature documentary film by Alexander Kvatashidze.


1999, Georgia. As a fine-arts young student in Tbilisi, I fall in love with a french woman I met by chance. She is a war photographer and I decide to go with her on the Chechnya front.

Ten years later, I take the same path, but the other way.

See you in Chechnya is a deeply personal film on war and what war does to men who watch it.
