(p.78) Chapter 3 Dmitry Mamuliya’s Another Sky (2010): The Language of Consciousness
The Filmmaker's Philosopher

Georgian-born director Dmitry Mamuliya studied under Mamardashvili at Tbilisi State University during the final years of the philosopher’s life. Mamuliya’s 2010 Another Sky is a festival film about the lives of a Tadjik migrant family in Moscow. This chapter engages Mamuliya’s experimental approach to sound and the absence of voice in Another Sky with Mamardashvili’s philosophy of language, which emphasized that cultural violence was first and foremost a problem of language. The chapter also addresses the topic of migration and citizenship in Mamardashvili’s own biography, especially in the final decade of his life, when he was forcibly repatriated to Tbilisi by Soviet authorities.
