To stop time

To stop time

The acclaimed director Audrius Stonys ranks among the most prominent Lithuanian documentary filmmakers. According to Stonys, the issue of freedom plays the main part in cinematography, being more important than any aesthetic criterion. Especially as there still are attempts to restrict such freedom, only they have taken the form of dictatorship of money. Stonys believes that documentary filmmaking was not born out of the desire to provide information. It was born out of astonishment and the possibility of being able to stop time and contemplate the miracle called “the world”.

Herzog mystery

Herzog mystery

MASTERCLASS OF WERNER HERZOG
He is only half-joking when he claims to have re-invented the cinema, as he never held any interest in the films of others and did not want to learn from anyone.

Only few filmmakers manage to remain a mystery, despite having made dozens of films. This is the case of Herzog. We invite you to a meeting during which we will at least partly unravel the Herzog mystery: MASTERCLASS OF WERNER HERZOG.
