Higher spirits in Lithuanian cinema
How much time is needed to review 80000 pictures? This visual pleasure lasts just 15 minutes. It is absolutely true, the creators of the first and only Lithuanian photo movie, assured. They presented the result of a unique audiovisual project - a short photo film - to the public.
The script was born when the 24 year old director, Jūratė Samulionytė was watching people busying themselves with everyday things and become bleary eyed, monotonous and bitter. The title of this film, declares a break from the ordinary - NOROUTINE.
The main character - Henrik, works at a very boring office job. The automatic repetition if the same actions can push one into an abyss of despair, especially when you are lonely. It's a good thing that Henrik has his "fun things", which help him get up with more energy and lead him toward self liberation. Due to these sincere efforts Henrik finds a mysterious ribbon. We can only guess whether it is made from bandage or toilet paper. The man begins his journey, incredibly intrigued himself and tries to figure out where the line could end. He starts collecting meter after meter of it, but it not only does not end, but floats around city streets, yards and various unexpected places. Finally, after following the waving line, Henrik finds a sunny surprise in his life and the next day is doubly happy for both him and his things.
NOROUTINE - trailer Visual illusion of movementThe moving spirit of the film, Jūratė, was interested in the Czech surrealists 's and French directors 's moving objects. She, together with her creative team, started to develop the idea of the screenplay a few years ago. Eventual decision about the visualization of the idea was finally doomed by the circumstances. At first the team thought about the cocktail of the filming and techniques, but they came to a conclusion, that in this way they will not taste the perfect taste of it, also knowing that a professional camera is a luxury for the young Lithuanian cinema makers. So in search of alternatives that would help transfer good emotions, the students chose the photo camera.
The spring in the screensFor the first time NOROUTINE shone on the big screens at the international film festival . This festival, organized for the thirteenth year already, revitalises the young first-timers, actors, movie directors, producers, cameramen and all lovers of alternative cinema. Pupils skipped their lessons, romantically swinging pairs and even working people, who took a special cinema vacation, could enjoy the rich program of the festival this year. This year, the festival, which was born in the legendary cinema , already said it's adieu to the lovers of non commercial cinema in Vilnius, but in Kaunas, Klaipėda, Panevėžys and Šiauliai you can still catch the screenings of selected movies.
