City of the Sun is a feature film by director/writer Rati Oneli, produced and co-written by Dea Kulumbegashvili. It premiered at 67th Berlinale Forum.

Film is a surreal vision of a post-apocalyptic ghost town and its several inhabitants. The lives, dreams and destinies of the characters unfold amidst the grand ruins of once “glorious” Soviet architectural and technological achievements in a semi-abandoned mining town.
