Directed by Mantas Kvedaravičius

A man repairs his fishing net and goes out to the bridge. Two trams run into each other – nobody is hurt and cables are fixed the same day. A small concert is given for factory workers and the sincere performance of a violinist makes them cry. Bombs fall into the sea, no one notices.

Everyday life is defined by bomb threats in Mariupol, a city in the Ukraine, situated to the east of the Crimea and once populated by Greeks. Mariupolis is a visually powerful homage to a city in crisis, dedicated to its poets and shoemakers.

This screening pays tribute to Mantas Kvedaravičius, a Lithuanian director who was killed while filming in Ukraine in April 2022. 

This event is co-organised with the Lithuanian Cultural Attaché in the UK and the Lithuanian Culture Institute
