His first feature film, Street Days, was regarded by many critics as the beginning of a new wave of the modern Georgian cinema. In 2013, his second narrative feature, Blind Dates, world-premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival and in 2016, he directed the documentary Gogita’s New Life. The film received an IDFA nomination for the best feature-length documentary.
