Making Light in Tbilisi is the first film by 16-year-old, Nilo Batle of San Francisco, CA. I'ts a documentary about his family’s experience making art during Artisterium, an art biennial held in Tbilisi, Georgia

The project focused on up-cycling disposable plastic containers. They transformed trash into functional light fixtures with the help of local students and artists. The film was screened at his high school’s film festival.

He attends Ruth Asawa School of the Arts in the Media and Film Arts department. He has been making films for less than a year. Batle says, "I have become so passionate about my involvement in film that I have decided to peruse film making in college."   

Lydia Matthews and Laurie Lazer co-curated the exhibition. Matthews, is a Brooklyn-based critical writer, contemporary art curator, educator and cultural activist who currently serves as Professor of Visual Culture and Director of the Curatorial Design Research Lab at Parsons The New School for Design.
