Journey through the folk influences of Bartόk’s distinct Hungarian voice, steeped in the joys and traditions of village life, and Szymnanowski’s dreamlike vision of the Polish Tatra Mountains. We then…

    Latvia, Lithuania, Estonia, 2018 dirs. Kristīne Briede, Audrius Stonys “At the beginning of the 1960s, when the French pioneers of cinéma vérité set out to achieve a new realism, and when direct cinema in Québec began to vie for notice, the Baltics witnessed the birth of a generation of documentarists who favoured a more romantic view of the world around them. This meditative documentary essay – from a Latvian writer and Lithuanian director whose composed touch has long dovetailed with the stylistically…
