About this Event

MOTHERLAND/Gimtinė

New York Premiere

96 min. In Lithuanian, Russian and English with English subtitles.

Shortly after the fall of the USSR, 12-year-old Kovas travels with his mother Viktorija to her homeland of Lithuania for the first time. Twenty years after she escaped the Soviet-occupied country for the United States, she has now returned to reclaim her beloved family estate, with the help of her old flame Romas, who escorts them into the countryside. Even though he speaks the language, everything is new for Kovas; having been raised with the stories of his mother, his observations of the country show a different side to nostalgia and longing, of belonging and trying to fit in. When they finally arrive at their long-awaited destination on Viktorija’s family’s land, only to find a run-down house occupied by an impoverished Russian family, they must reconsider what it really means to come home. Directed by Tomas Vengris (Lithuania, 2019)
