Deep Rivers Run Silent is an ongoing series of summer screenings and events organized by Meno Avilys under the Liubartas Bridge. The idea for the project was born in 2020, during the lockdown, when film exhibitors’ plans were altered by the closing of cinemas and other cultural institutions. Searching for a safe option to organize screenings, Meno Avilys moved them under Liubartas Bridge, where in 2019, sculptors Andrius Labašauskas and Rytis Urbanskas initiated Patiltė and installed a pink sculptural object that doubles as an amphitheater. To foster the community, Meno Avilys reached out to other cultural organizations and independent curators, which led to the creation of the collaborative project Deep Rivers Run Silent. Its program encompasses a diverse range of events, including screenings of films and video art, live concerts, literary readings, and meetings with artists.
The project is partly funded by the Lithuanian Film Centre, Vilnius City Municipality and AVAKA. The strategic partner of Meno Avilys’s projects is the Lithuanian Council for Culture.
