It was the year 1984 when a group of architects decided to organize a one night music band as a New Year's party joke in Kaunas, Lithuania. The joke proved to be so good that rumors about the new exciting rock band spread from lips to lips and soon their intellectual circus grew into the Rock Marches - massive events involving thousands of people - that transformed into the big meetings for Lithuanian Independence later named the Singing Revolution. This is the story about the people who raised their independence with the smiles and songs regardless of the danger of the situation.

The Corridor (1995)
In this film, unusual narrative techniques and thematics structures are combined to produce an associative mosaic of remembered and current fragments of experience. Images of lost but also passionately sough - after bonds: an apocalyptic world in which time, logic and a general sense of values appear to dissolve. The film creates the atmosphere of a corridor between yesterday and today containing many doors - but where they lead nobody knows.
