Power trip the movie trailer


Power Trip is a documentary film by director Paul Devlin that describes the electricity crisis in the country of Georgia shortly after the fall of the Soviet Union. It looks at the chaos and riots that occurred in Tbilisi, Georgia, shortly after the AES Corporation, an American global power company, purchased Telasi, Tbilisi's privatized electricity distribution company. The film exposes corruption in the highest levels of government as well as the plight of the Georgian people as they struggle for power.

Screening and reception

Power Trip has screened in 60 countries, theatrically across the United States and on PBS's Independent Lens. The film was nominated for an Independent Spirit Award in 2003, and has won 10 film festival awards, including top prizes at the Berlin International Film Festival, Hot Docs in Toronto, Canada, and the Florida Film Festival.

Stephen Holden of The New York Times described the film as a "superbly balanced and organized documentary" and "a skillful assemblage of newsreel clips, cartoons ridiculing the American interlopers, television commercials and interviews with power officials and ordinary Georgians."
