When one-time wrestling champion Kakhi moves from Georgia to live with his son, Soso, in the suburbs of Brooklyn, he finds the young man in trouble with a gang from Georgia. Kakhi’s tired gaze is a sign that he has survived years of wrestling strong opponents outside the ring, but at this age where he hopes to rest, one last encounter awaits him. Because the old man is ready to do anything to give his son a new chance. Brighton 4th reminds us of the classic films about the lives and loneliness of immigrants falling outside of both worlds and, by skilfully combining bitter and sweet, does not lose its humanist sensibility for a moment. Levan Tediashvili is a former wrestler, just like the character he portrays in the movie, which takes an inside look at the life of the Georgian minority in America.

Levan Koguashvili (Tbilisi in 1973) studied Film Production at the Georgian State University of Theatre and Cinema in Tbilisi. Between 1995 and 1999, he studied Film Directing at the Russian State Institute of Film (VGIK) in Moscow. His short film, The Debt, won a number of awards at international film festivals. His documentaries, Father and Son and Women from Georgia, have also taken part at many film festivals and won prizes. His debut, Street Days, premiered at Rotterdam in 2010. In 2013, he made his second feature, Blind Dates, which premiered at the Berlinale. In 2016, he directed the documentary Gogita’s New Life.
