Nana Ekvtimishvili and Simon Gross' coming-of-age drama set during Georgia's civil war has been scooping up awards worldwide.

LONDON – In Bloom, a coming-of-age drama set in 1992 during a post-Soviet civil war was nominated Wednesday as Georgia's Oscar submission in the foreign language category.

The story of two teenage girls coping with puberty and war has touched the hearts of festival juries worldwide, with a dozen awards since the film premiered in Berlin.

Apart from kudos for directors Nana Ekvtimishvili and Simon Gross, the film's young stars Lika Babluani and Mariam Bokeria have jointly won best actress more than once, most recently at last month's Sarajevo Film Festival and July's Odessa IFF.

A Georgia-Germany co-production supported by the Georgian National Film Center, the movie is backed by German and French TV channels ARTE and ZDF.

The Georgian premiere is scheduled in Tbilisi on Sept. 19.
