    • Synopsis
    • To mark the 20th anniversary of Lithuania's independence the British Artist-Writer-Curator & Cultural historian David Ellis embarked on a journey through Lithuania to meet people and gauge the tempo and success of the transition. The making of the film had several agendas: it is about memory, about migration, and about returning home perhaps, and about the occupation of not just the country but also the psyche.
      Almost twenty years ago David Ellis first came to Lithuania lead by curiosity of post soviet culture and constantly continued his visits up until now. It is a diary-based film documenting a journey through Lithuania’s towns meeting people and discussing how twenty years of independence reflect on their lives. This journey documents David’s meeting with present Lithuania and allows him to compare it with his early experiences.
