When artist and filmmaker Eric Baudelaire posted a letter to Maxim Gvinjia, Abkhazia’s former Minister of Foreign Affairs, he expected it to be returned ‘destination unknown’. To his surprise, he received a phone call from Max.
So began a conversation between them chronicling the contested state of Abkhazia, situated on the eastern coast of the Black Sea, which seceded from Georgia during the 1992–93 Civil War and remains a disputed territory. This is a country that, technically, to us in the UK does not exist; its independence only recognised by a few nations – and so occupies an odd place in both the international community’s, and its own, consciousness.
