Icarus Films has acquired all North American distribution rights to Tinatin Gurchiani’s The Machine Which Makes Everything Disappear (pictured), which is playing at Sundance in the World Documentary Competition.

The film, which enjoys its North American premiere in Park City today (January 18), sees  Georgian filmmaker Gurchiani searching for young adults in order to make a film about growing up in Georgia, her home country.

Young people from a variety of backgrounds across the country respond, each with their own reasons for participating. Using their testimony, Gurchiani¬†weaves “a kaleidoscopic tapestry of war and love, wealth and poverty, creating an extraordinarily complex vision of a modern society that still echoes with its Soviet past,” according to the filmmakers.

The deal was inked by Icarus Films president Jonathan Miller and the MD of Leipzig-based Deckert Distribution, Heino Deckert.
