The Green Musketeers (2015)
On the brink of collapse of the Soviet Union a charismatic engineer, Saulius Gricius, initiated an environmental movement of young people in Lithuania. They exited the reality formed by the Soviet society, into the realm of nature, history and national heritage, forming personal bonds that in turn provided a formidable informal infrastructure for courageous actions.
The movement rapidly evolved into a vanguard for a national revival, eventually encouraging political action and bringing the country to the “Singing Revolution”, which marked the end of the Soviet era. Sadly, Saulius' life, too, came to its end.
A moving tale about the formation of a new country, and the inevitable costs of such an undertaking.
This season of films has been brought to us by Baltic View with support from The Ministry Of Culture Of The Republic Of Lithuania.
