The 2008 conflict investigated in RTD’s Georgia documentaries
The 2008 conflict over the breakaway provinces of South Ossetia and Abkhazia has overshadowed relations between Russia and Georgia for a decade. RTD’s Georgia documentaries look at the origins of the conflict and how the breakup of the Soviet Union added to the tension in the region. The films look at the 2008 war and how it was handled on both sides. Although the conflict was brief, the scars it has left run deep. As the years pass the memory hasn’t faded for those who lived through the bombing. They tell their stories in a series of films looking back over the years at how people are coming to terms with the situation.
