My Lithuanian Summer

A film about childhood and how one goes to learn about life.

This was a personal film made during my studies at UAL. At the time I was hooked on Yuri Norstein’s work (for those who don’t know this name, he is the creator of Hedgehog in the Fog, a master of stop-motion). 

I have always been fascinated by children and their weird behaviours, so I decided to dwelve into my own childhood memories and share these experiences in this autobiographical work.

The technique consists of acrylic paint, cel sheets and blu-tac. I have learned many mistakes from this project lol.
