Five and a Half Love Stories in an Apartment in Vilnius, Lithuania
A series of vignettes situated in an apartment in Vilnius conceives a charming portrayal of the complexities of desire and love.
The sophomore feature from Tomas Vengris, the story revolves around the fleeting experiences of five AirBnB guests, each in differing states of romantic entanglement and crisis. The sequences are punctuated through appearances from the cleaning lady, who rhythmically wipes away evidence of the emotional experiences and encounters in the flat, whilst her own love story unfurls.
Co-produced by Irish filmmaker Alicia Ní Ghráinne, the film beautifully encapsulates the intricacies of love and relationships across age, gender and sexuality. RG
This screening will be followed by a Q&A session with the film's director Tomas Vengris, and producer Alicia Ní Ghráinne.
