Toli Nuo Tevynes (Far From Home)
Far From Home zooms in on a number of Lithuanian emigre artists now living and working in Canada and on the East Coast of the United States. Featured are famous weavers Mr. And Mrs. Tamosaiciai, sculptor J.Baukus and painters A.Valeska, V.Vizgirda, E.Urbaityte and G.Zumbakiene, who discuss how they relate today to the birthplace they left long ago, and show to what extent Lithuanian motifs still figure in their work. Both the richness and poverty of America are shown in contrast to shots of Lithuanian countryside to provide a sense of the tension in the lives of emigres who embrace both worlds. Lithuania, 1981, directed by Robertas Verba and Laima Pangonyte, Color, 20 minutes, sound, Lithuanian dialogue, no subtitles.
