A tragicomic love story from a country that doesn't exist

The Georgian breakaway republic of Abkhazia is only recognized as a sovereign state by five other nations. This doesn't keep the war-torn, impoverished country's minister of sports from trying to drum up some international excitement for his homeland by hosting the world domino championship. Equal parts funny, satirical and bittersweet, DOMINO EFFECT is a multifaceted journey through a ramshackle country which is just barely held together by its citizens' almost superhuman levels of patriotism.

Free screening Wednesday 28. September at Nobel Bopel – more information to be announced. The screening is part of KineDok (kinedok.net). Facebook-event.
