Kutaissi, a city in West Georgia, 13 years after the end of the Soviet period. The territory of a former open air cinema has been transformed into a church, the projection screen is still visible – a picture carrier that lost its pictures. Some are happy about the Lord’s house, others regret the loss of the cinema or wonder about the Stalin statue that was erected by a donator some years ago.
By the means of cinematically animated photography and interviews with passers-by the film Hollywood attempts to transmit an atmosphere of a certain lieu and to allow an approach to the dreams, hopes and fears of the local people.
