Audrius Stonys Focus 2019

Audrius Stonys' vast work is a potent symbol and significant to (and of) the world. From the early 1990s – until now – the Lithuanian filmmaker takes us along paths of encounter with the “other” but, above all, with the core of what it means to be human. Stonys captures the essence of being through careful observation, a look that reflects fascination and respect for everyone and all that he presents (and represents).

This focus also includes the special program by Audrius Stonys, "Landscapes of Forbidden Memory", that brings together works by several Lithuanian directors, as well as the screening of two Jonas Mekas' films.
