Vilnius is a city of notable historical heritage and unique character currently undergoing considerable changes. Some of the life fragments our camera has recorded are no more. The film, therefore, is a testimony to that which has faded into oblivion, and a glimpse into what is to come.
The film is inspired by the city symphony genre and films like Berlin: Symphony of a Great City by Walter Ruttmann, A propos de Nice by Jean Vigo, or Time Passes Through the City by Almantas Grikevicius.
By experimenting on the conventions of the genre I try to capture the time flow and the transient nature of city life. The portrait of Vilnius I have created is the result of my intimate acquaintance with the city of many faces.
