Q&A Elene Naveriani


The sun has not quite risen in Tbilisi, Georgia, when April is released after having spent another night in jail for prostitution. Although, for April and her fellow sex workers, the sun will probably never come up. They live in a masculine world in which women are a disposable commodity – something to vent your anger on. In the shadow of a luxury hotel, April meets Dije, a young Nigerian immigrant – an outsider even among outsiders. He once thought he was on his way to Georgia, USA, but ended up here instead. Another dream dashed.


“I am Truly a Drop of Sun on Earth are words taken from postcolonial writer Frantz Fanon. The movie is a black and white tale, set in Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia, where I was born and raised. I am Truly a Drop of Sun on Earth is a gesture tracing and remembering the invisibles.” Elene Naveriani

Elene Naveriani born in Tbilisi, Georgia. She studied cinema in HEAD, Geneva, Switzerland, from 2011 to 2013
