We started the series of nights with the documentary with the public service ad ‘Experiment Translation’, created for the Lithuanian Centre for Human Rights. After the screening, together with the special guest, Centre Director Birutė Sabatauskaitė, and youngsters present at the screening, a debate was held, coupled with the exchange of experiences linked to hate speech. The screening allowed us to see how members of Lithuanian society react to incidents related to intolerance and discrimination. A detailed report of the first screening can be found here.
We cordially invite everyone interested to attend the next screenings:
- 4 June, 5 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. (room 005) – let’s meet at the screening of the film ‘Cyganie Karpaccy z pogranicza polsko-słowackiego’ (‘The Carpathian Gypsies from the Polish-Slovak border’);
The film was created by the Association for Culture Research and Documentation ‘A Posteriori’. It is an educational documentary, showing the history and modern times of Gypsies of the Bergitka Roma group, living in the Sądecczyzna, Podhale and Stará Ľubovňa area in Slovakia. The special guest of the meeting will be Bożena Karvielienė, with whom we will discuss the situation of the Roma community in Lithuania.
- 11 June, 5 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. (room 005) – we invite you to the film ‘Ethnic Kitchen’.
The film ‘Ethnic Kitchen’ is the project of the director Aistė Ptakauskė, who together with the film’s protagonists (for instance, Bożena Karvielienė) will be the special guest at the meeting. The film depicts the story of four women of non-Lithuanian origin, who have lived in Lithuania for many years. The film is an answer to the question ‘Can Lithuania be your promised land?’.
Entrance to the screenings and discussion is free! After the discussion, there will be refreshments and a prize draw to win a pair of cinema tickets for a film of your choice.
