From the very first days of its birth, cinema has always tried to realize its main "task"- to tell a story in an interesting way with independent and original audiovisual methods. Logically, the methods, forms and content of cinematic narration and delivery have undergone large-scale development and transformation during its existence. Neither is it unusual that the main characters of films, who are not only in the center of attention but also become "narrators" themselves, are not directly human, but also other spiritual or non-spiritual beings.
A future film directors’ workshop led by Merab Kokochashvili brought together young people with interesting potential, in whose works we can read the attempt to see the spark, aesthetics, beauty, and even value in everyday, seemingly banal stories and spaces, which will make us think about the events around us and show us their meaning. It might as well give us a small piece of life advice. Ilia Asitashvili's film "Preparation" offers just that – a delicate, aesthetic, somewhat humorous, and familiar observation of the problematic relationship between a father and his teenage son in a modern family.
