A festival of Lithuanian plays, music, film, design and talks

The One that Hurt the Most by Gabriele Labanauskaite
In an underground urban bar, gay culture thrives away from society's disgusted glare. But when Jetaime's parents unexpectedly arrive, so do their prejudices and rejection. Coming out in this homophobic society starts a deathly chain of events.

The Doll by Dovile Katiliute
In a city where nothing is allowed, including laughing, Antanas has an illegal secret - a Doll he can hear. But when his mother and the local priest try to take her away, Antanas flees this restrictive world.

Goodbye My Love by Marius Macevicius
Birute's life in Scotland is seemingly glamorous and free, apparently runnning a resturant with a Turkish boyfriend- in every sense an envied member of the diaspora. But ambitions run deeper than motherly love as she returns to see her son in Lithuania, and capitalism touches a post-Soviet life.
