Featuring a special video introduction from Laurynas Bareiša!
A young woman and man reunite for a mission of initially unknown origin and goal. Indre (Gabija Bargailaite) and Paulius (Giedrius Kiela) are connected by a violent tragedy that killed Matas—her boyfriend, his brother. Spurred on by Paulius’s obsessive need to recount and relive the events that led to his death, they find themselves caught up in the past. Skillfully doling out narrative information piece by piece and layer upon layer in scenes marked by elegant, sinister single takes, Lithuanian filmmaker Laurynas Bareiša has created a foreboding, yet ultimately hopeful portrait of people racked with trauma and unresolved anger. Winner of the Horizons Award at the 2021 Venice International Film Festival.
