About the films:
A short social commercial “Experiment Translation” depicts an actual social experiment whose aim is to make a wide audience aware of how people of different ages reacted to a hateful message which a young African American received. Do you want to see what happened? Join us! The film has been produced by the Lithuanian Centre for Human Rights.
“Carpathian Roma from the Poland-Slovakia Borderland” is an educational documentary film which shows the history and present times of the Roma from Bergitka Roma ethnic group that inhabits the regions of Sądecczyzna, Podhale, and Stara Lubowla in Slovakia. We invite you to meet this extraordinary community. The film has been produced by the Association for Research and Culture Documentation “A Posteriori”.
“Ethnic Kitchen” presents the story of four women of non-Lithuanian origin, who have been living in Lithuania for many years. It is a specific answer to the question: “Can Lithuania be your promised land?” The film “Ethnic Kitchen” is a project created by Aistė Ptakauskaitė.
