Anne is a 17-year-old headstrong, cool nerd who lives with her single mom. While covering a softball game for the high school yearbook committee, she becomes infatuated with Sasha, the pretty star of the team. The two girls charmingly hit it off and quickly become close. But when Anne excitedly shares her newfound attraction to Sasha with her best friend, Cliff, he reveals his feelings for Anne and lashes out at her in unanticipated ways.

Writer/director Kerem Sanga tells a coming-of-age story freshly and unexpectedly with a fugue-like narrative structure. Through flashback and each character’s point of view, a multifaceted drama unfolds to reveal the complete love triangle between Anne, Cliff, and Sasha. Told with authenticity, humor, and creative use of social media, “First Girl I Loved” is a delightful, contemporary perspective on the first jitters of new romance and the age-old heartbreak of love.

The war fought by the Greeks to shake off the Turkish yoke was closely observed around Europe and, this being the era of romanticism, the events taking place around Greece between 1821 and 1832 became a symbol for national liberation struggle.

“The portrait tells us that there is an inner and an outer dimension of the human condition; it provides—or should provide—information about both the physical and psychological character of an individual.”

“A nameless Egyptian fresco, an African idol or a vase from Crete: we should behold Pirosmani’s art among them. Only this way it is possible to conceive it genuinely … …You see Pirosmani – you believe in Georgia”.
