The new feature film of the Lithuanian director Sharunas Bartas, ‘Peace to Us in Our Dreams’ was premiered in Romania, at BIEFF, after he got its international premiere at Cannes.
The action of the film revolves around an intellective person, urban par excellence (played by Bartas himself) who embarks in a short summer trip to his house from the countryside, together with his daughter (played by Ina Marija Martaite, Bartas’ daughter in real life) and his partner, a violinist (interpreted by violinist Lora Kmielliauskaite). Cover by the enchanting picture of the nature found in a state of silence, which is disturbed just by the presence of the human being, the movie is a painful, broody and sad reflection of the moment when life reaches a point of no return, as the character Bartas decided to play (Dan Făinaru, Screen Daily).
‘Peace to Us in Our Dreams’ will be released on 16th March, from 19:30, at Elvira Popesco cinema, with the support of Dacia. Tickets are already available on eventbook.ro, says the organizers.
Another Romanian premiere will take place during the Closing Gala, with the projection of the erotic and provocateur ‘Einsenstein in Guanajuato’, the most recent feature film of Peter Greenaway, participant in the Gold Bear Contest at Berlin 2015. It will be projected in Bucharest on Sunday, 20th March, at the Peasant Museum Cinema, with the support of British Council. Tickets in advanced are available on eventbook.ro.
