When writers’ family from Moscow – Lyudmila and Andrei Sergeyevs – arrived for the first time to rest in Palanga, they could not even imagine the influence of this family rest on the history of literature of the twentieth century, and that they would become a binding link, a kind of “East-West” bridge, which was built in Soviet times. In Palanga, the spouses met poet Tomas Venclova, to whom they soon introduced their friend Iosif Brodsky. Later, Brodsky met poet Czesław Miłosz and this threesome, according to him, made more than politicians: established friendship among the peoples.

CODE OF TUMAS

Vaižgantas

 

 

 

 

 

Planned to be released in 2018.

“Code of Tumas ” is an effort to show the well-known events and processes of history through the eyes of a direct person with a subjective and emotional look. Letters, publicism, all creations of Juozas Tumas-Vaižgantas, also memories of his contemporaries make this reconstruction possible.

Tumas is a prominent character who can be very angry and cheerful, and also have a great joy. Insufficiency of hypocrisy, selfishness and negligence allows us to think of a solid value backbone – and this is one of the reasons why it is worth talking about this person today. And also, he is sensitive to the needy, and not only the daily bread, even more, the culture. His personality in general embodies the idea that a modern state is first and foremost a cultural project (the idea today is even more actual). His posture attracted sincere and dedicated people, and the hypocrites and people naughty by nature were angry and annoyed by him. Respect for the freedom of conscience of each person has earned him the title of pastor of the atheists, but his value orientations undoubtedly grow from the Christian roots, and loyalty to them is dramatic in a more and more secular society. Unmotivated by his self-rigorous position, not stoppable as a voice of conscience, an inexhaustible negotiator between indissoluble positions, Tumas is first and foremost a free person whose adaptation to requirements of force policy or materialistic deduction is simply unacceptable, and expresses him in this surprising manner – with a little regard for things considered by many serious and seriously talking about those small things that “big” people do not even notice at times.

THAT WORD – LITUANIE

treaty_of_versailles_1919

 

 

Planned to be released in 2018.

The film crew, as if being detectives try to understand how their country became independent about a hundred years ago. Starting from facts and a little dull talks with historians, the search of information (knowledge) takes them to Paris where they discover even more philosophical questions related not only to the independence, but as well to the concept of freedom in general.
“We have started making a movie about the freedom conference of 1919 and the role of Lithuanians in it. But making this movie we have stumbled upon lots of ideas. We have started asking ourselves, what is freedom, and what is the difference between the territorial and personal, or self-freedom?”
