BNFF 2018: Together Forever (Lithuania)

Original Title: Amžinai Kartu
Director: Lina Lužytė
2015, 88 minutes
Lithuanian with English subtitles

An apparently contented three-member family is on its way to a gala concert. The mother is excited, the daughter is bored, and the only thing that keeps the father from falling asleep is an urgent phone call. Their differing interests, however, run deeper. In fact, it soon becomes clear that their life together represents three separate parallel existences devoid of any visible effort to achieve mutual understanding. White lies grow into deep wounds that intensify during what should have been a minor home emergency.

Bright Lights: Baltic-Nordic Film Festival

This March the CFI, in collaboration with the Baltic-Nordic embassies, presents the 8th iteration of Bright Nights: The Baltic-Nordic Film Festival. These eight contemporary films ⎯ never before seen in Ottawa ⎯ highlight the unique perspective one can only see by standing at the top of the world. The Bright Nights festival presents a collection of films that juxtapose the bleak, the dark, and the edgy with the hilarious, the eclectic, the personal, and always the intriguing. These incredible stories form a festival unlike any other, and an opportunity that comes only once a year.
