Baltic Trilogy


5th September 1969, and Gitel Bargman is about to attend a party to celebrate her 33rd birthday - although for her it is hardly cause for celebration. She is racked with guilt for simply being alive. Attractive, intelligent and witty, Gitel is a successful violinist who lives in a Kuybyshev (USSR) apartment. To the outsider, she has everything. But Gitel hides a secret. She's a haunted woman: haunted not only by painful memories of the past, but also by the ghosts of her two sisters who died when she, by a mere quirk of fate, survived. And because she lives in the past, Gitel cannot embrace her future.

We Will Sing (Mes Dainuosim)

On January 12, 1991, Lithuania braced itself for an attack by the Soviet Union. This film tells some of that story.

A group of people -students, an elderly couple, a violinist searching for her husband (taken by the KGB), anxious parents, a priest and others- find themselves in the same place, on the evening of January 12, 1991. They are defending their newly established freedom against the Soviet occupiers and position themselves at the Television Tower where the Soviet troops are trying to wrest control of communications (under the orders of Mikhail Gorbachev). The protesters are unarmed. They sing hymns and folk songs. But soon the tanks and troops advance and threaten the singing protesters.
