Baltic View has started a new initiative showing films from the Baltic countries. We are proud to announce our first official CINEMA EVENT with a Lithuanian documentary film MASTER AND TATYANA. It will take place in London on the 14th of June at 6:30 PM at CINÉ LUMIÈRE - the French Institute. The film's director Giedre Žickyte will attend the event and take part in a Q&A session after the screening. The Q&A will be conducted by another Lithuanian documentary film director Neringa Medutyte.
The film has travelled throughout many established film festivals around the world and received many awards, including 4 "Silver Cranes" awards during the Lithuanian National film awards in 2015.
The film tells a story about the life of a famous Lithuanian photographer Vitas Luckus (1943-1987). He was an extremely colourful artist standing out from the Soviet era. Keeping a lion cub in his apartment seemed a norm to him. Vitas went beyond Lithuanian surroundings and documented the spontaneous reality of the Soviet Republics. His photographs, just like his eccentric lifestyle, makes a long lasting impression even today. He lived in Vilnius with his beautiful wife Tatyana and together they were a vibrant couple of the 60s. Their home was always full of people, wine, nightlong conversations, guests from the farthermost places of the Soviet Union. This is a very personal story of love and life portraying a fragile connection with the past. Join Tatyana and her journey back in time with Vitas.
