To The Festival (Sventen)
With a flurry of impressions set to strains of full-bodied choral music, To the Festival captures the spirit of one of Lithuania's many music festivals. We see singers, musicians, and spectators arrive by train and horse-drawn cart from all parts of the country. Devoid of dialogue, the film uses only music and eloquent gestures to bring alive a unique cultural experience. Lithuania, 1970, directed by Robertas Verba, B/W, 20 minutes, sound.
