The animated film "Armed Lullaby" has been included into the programme of the Berlin International Film Festival, to be held in February. The cartoon tells about the Georgian-Abkhaz conflict through the eyes of a child.

The cartoon was directed by Yana Ugrekhelidze, who lives in Germany; it was filmed with the support of the North Rhine-Westphalia Film and Media Foundation and the Cologne Academy of Media Arts, the "Georgia-Online" reports.
