Audrius Mickevičius puts the horribly disfigured face of his murdered brother at the start of his film. It is almost a meditation about the question whether a final act like murder can be atoned for in a temporal order – and whether the passing of time allows the victim’s family to forgive. Mickevičius uses the example of two lifers (one of them gets married and wants to have children, the other pours his whole passion into an idea of craftsmanship) and a philosopher with prison experience to make that strange state of suspended life comprehensible.
Audrius Mickevičius was born in 1965, Noreikiskes, Lithuanian USSR. Graduated from the architectural department of Lithuanian Academy of Arts and the department of visual communications at the Royal Pedagogical Institute in Copenhagen. Shot 16 short and documentary films screened at various international film festivals. Taught at the Vilnius Academy of Arts.
