Interior, wilderness

A cryptic mystique finds its way inbetween the folds of slow-paced, seemingly stark films of Lithuanian director Šarūnas Bartas. Souls transcend bodies and take hold of a whole room, be it as mist or, perhaps, as indoor gardens – a recurring theme of his work from the ’90s. Souls that cry for something higher in The Corridor and Few of Us, souls that take over in the absurd, baroque fable that is The House. The outer world drenched in the inner. Thou shalt not try to understand, but only experience.
