    In Australia Natela appeared in the role of Lydia Mokras in docudrama “I Spry” produced by an award winning director Peter Butt. The film took Gold Award for Dramatised Documentary, Calvin Gardiner ACS – 2010 Australian Cinematographers’ Society (NSW).

    As Lydia Mokras

    “Dear Natela, you lit up the set every time you appeared. You have a rare ability in that way. The camera loves you and you are mesmerizing to watch. It comes down to beauty, style, gentle charisma as well as your gift in the art of acting and experience in life. You can tell a story merely with your eyes.”

       – Peter Butt, Award-winning Filmmaker.

    Natela’s international directing credits include “The Proposal” by Anton Chekhov which received acclaimed review from one of South Africa's prominent critics.

    With her actors in Cape Town

    “Dzuliashvili has brought a beguiling touch of the noted Moscow drama to Cape Town. In all-round skillful production, I particularly liked her rapid pace combined with her handling of the pause, and the way her robust style stops just short of burlesque…. she brings the right note of levity to her bright and charming production, the style always being just on the right side of caricature, with all pomposity gently deflated.”

       – Owen Williams, Critic for "Cape Argus"


    The clip bellow is from dubbed into Russian language film "Superman" in which Natela is a voice of Lois Lane played by Margot Kidder.
