Georgian journalists sue the creators of the film "Five Days in August"
Leadership of the Georgian TV company "Trialeti" were outraged by the way its members were represented in the film "Five Days of August", which tells about the war in South Ossetia.
According to VZGLYAD, in a statement of the company was said that journalists of the "Trialeti" were shown as amateurs who do not want to cooperate with their foreign counterparts. At the same time, representatives of the broadcasting company noted that during the conflict in South Ossetia staff of "Trialeti" did not leave the international press center, in contrast to the staff of city administration and police.
It should be noted that the Georgian opposition has repeatedly accused the government of the country for sponsoring a film, for which, according to opponents of the current authorities, it has been allocated $ 35 million of the country's budget . Mikhail Saakashvili categorically denied this information.
Papuna Davitaia, who later became State Minister for Diaspora Affairs, appeared producer of the film.
In April, the film was shown at international film festival in Valencia, and in May - at the Cannes festival.
