From Sundance to Berlin

In January, the Bildrausch friend Vadim Jendreyko presented his latest work at Robert Redford’s legendary film festival. In March, he will be showing Taming the Garden at the Forum section of the Berlin Film Festival.

No less than two Swiss productions made it into the programme of Sundance Film Festival in January, Taming the Garden was one of them. The documentary was co-produced by the Bildrausch friend Vadim Jendreyko and his company Mira Film in Basel, and directed by the Georgian-German filmmaker Salomé Jashi. Their “quiet, absorbing” film will now also be shown in the Forum section of the 51st Berlin Film Festival.
 
According to Salomé Jashi, her works try to seek out the subversive elements of life. Her film is also presented as a "poetic ode to the rivalry between men and nature" – we are excited! Taming the Garden tracks the surreal uprooting of ancient tress along the Georgian coast in order to replant them in the private park of a powerful man.

Basel-based producer, author and director Vadim Jendreyko (The Woman with the 5 Elephants) got enthusiastic about the Bildrausch idea early on, and among other things got involved as a board member of the international Filmfest.  
 
We congratulate Vadim on the meteoric start of Taming the Garden’s festival career, and on the European premiere in Berlin!
