IL – Movie “Kelionės namo”

April 27, Saturday, 7:00 PM

Saturday, April 27 at 7 pm
Balzekas Museum of Lithuanian Culture (6500 S Pulaski Rd, Chicago, IL 60629)

Screening of “Kelionės namo”, a documentary film by Ramunė Rakauskaitė. 2019, 60 min., in Lithuanian with English subtitles. Film Director will be present. “Kelionės namo”, is an upbeat memoir, never before presented in cinema, recounting the unexpected first encounters of American-Lithuanians who traveled back to their Soviet-occupied homeland after WWII. During the war, the heroes of the film were forced to leave Lithuania and became displaced persons (DP). Their nostalgia created somewhat naïve images of their homeland. Yet when allowed to travel to Soviet Lithuania in the late ‘60s and 70’s, they were confronted with a different reality! This account of returning to their homeland reveals the hope and spirit of the pre-occupation era, the intersection of two different civilizations, colorful heroes and their unique experiences.
