Until the Quiet Comes
During the war between Abkhazia and Georgia in the early nineties, 87-year-old Toro fled to Georgia with his cousin and his cousin's wife. Since then, they have been living together in a remote mountain village. Despite Toro's endless positivity, humour and resilience, the harshness of reality has inevitably started to manifest itself in his life. Until the Quiet Comes is a story about dependency and the strength to carry on in those moments when everything seems to be falling apart. Told through tragedy and humour, Yaron Cohen’s documentaries present intimate, observational stories about people, their personal struggles and resilience.
