More about Gabriele Urbonaite:

Gabriele’s creative journey began at the film academy “Skalvija” in Vilnius. She furthered her studies at Emerson College in Boston. Gabriele currently studies in the Master’s Program in Film and Media Studies at Columbia University.

“I strive to narrate the histories of young people, from my current perspective”. The film “Home”, which we will view during this afternoon event, is no exception. Gabriele speaks about what she herself has experienced through the central character of the film, through the feelings of the 22 year-old Eve: what it means for a young person to return home from abroad and to realize that home has changed.

The film “Home” premiered at the Vilnius International Film Festival, where the character who played the leading role was nominated for the prize of Best Actress. The film has also been shown at international film festivals in Europe, the United States, and China. An earlier film of G. Urbonaite, “Plaukikė“, won the “Silver Crane” award in 2013 for the Best Short Film.
