Taming the Garden


No Longer Available


Playing in Virtual Cinema through Thursday, September 16, 2021.

A powerful and anonymous man has developed an unusual hobby. He buys century-old trees, some as tall as 15-story buildings, from communities along the Georgian coast and has them excavated to collect them for his private garden. In order to transplant trees of such dimensions, the landscape surrounding them is ripped apart, and the people living around them forced to adapt to the disruption.

Filmmaker Salomé Jashi will join Amherst Cinema General Manager George Myers on Monday, September 6 at 9am ET for a Facebook Live Q&A to discuss TAMING THE GARDEN. Click here to visit our Facebook page and join the conversation on September 6 at 9am. Come with questions to ask in the chat, or simply sit back and enjoy the talk.
