The Inflatable Angel
"recounts the atmosphere in Georgia during the 2000s, when criminality seemed to be the most promising way to success and questions of faith were instrumentalized. At a necromancy ceremony, a young couple unexpectedly encounters a famous esoteric and charlatan of the 20th century. With his help, rising up the ladder suddenly seems possible. »Zaza Burchuladze is considered one of the most important authors of his generation. It’s due to his enemies that he has lived in Berlin for some time: Religious extremists once burned his novels and essays"
