  • The Linen Veļa
    Directed by: Laila Pakalniņa
    Latvia, 1991, 11min.
    Section: Reflections of Time: Baltic Poetic Documentary

    The first part of a trilogy, the film follows a delivery van driver who brings linen to a children’s hospital.

  • The Ferry Prāmis
    Directed by: Laila Pakalniņa
    Latvia, 1994, 16min.
    Section: Reflections of Time: Baltic Poetic Documentary

    In the wake of Latvian independence, we see brief moments from the daily lives of people living in two different countries: the ferry on the Daugava river connects villagers across the newly established Latvia-Belarus border. A meditative portrait of a place at the end of the world, far from the hubbub of the nationalism that was characteristic of the early nineties.

  • The Mail Pasts
    Directed by: Laila Pakalniņa
    Latvia, 1995, 20min.
    Section: Reflections of Time: Baltic Poetic Documentary

    The film is a study of mail delivery and receipt: a letter carrier goes about her regular mail delivery route early in the morning. We observe various locations and people, and witness different peculiarities. The camera is often motionless, allowing the action to unfold within a static frame.

  • Earth of the Blind Neregių žemė
    Directed by: Audrius Stonys
    Lithuania, 1992, 25min.
    Section: Reflections of Time: Baltic Poetic Documentary

    Audrius Stonys, another “break generation” filmmaker, debuted with Earth of the Blind, which came to serve as the generation’s manifesto. Stonys was a disciple of documentary filmmaker Henrikas Šablevičius, and the latter’s influence is present in Earth of the Blind, a picture that weaves the new generation’s silent aesthetics and novel characters into the old visual poetics.

  • Antigravitation Antigravitacija
    Directed by: Audrius Stonys
    Lithuania, 1995, 20min.
    Section: Reflections of Time: Baltic Poetic Documentary

    Audrius Stonys’ Antigravitation is a continuation of the new poetic cinema of the “break generation.” Silence is a common feature in all the documentaries of this school. Symbolically, it represents the silence of freedom in the wake of the uproar of independence rallies.
