Exemplary Behaviour

  • Lithuania
Audio Tracks 

Having experienced the loss of the murdered brother, director Audrius Mickevičius went to the Lukiškės prison to examine the paradox of "exemplary behaviour". Mickevičius met Rimas and Rolandas who are sentenced to life but driven by the hope of change. Mickevičius himself experienced the journey from anger to forgiveness, which was interrupted by his terminal disease. Exemplary Behaviour, completed by its script editor Nerijus Milerius, explores the ideas of forgiveness and social justice.
