Land Of Songs (Aldona Watts | 2015 | Lithuania/USA | PG)
Aldona Watts | 2015 | Lithuania/USA | PG
In a region of Lithuania known as 'Land of Songs', five sprightly elderly women have kept their village’s ancient folk singing tradition alive through decades of war, occupation, and desertion. Aldona Watts’ debut feature is a tender record of the lives of these remarkable women, and an eloquent testament to heritage and the universal language of folk music.
This screening was introduced by a live performance of Lithuanian and Polish work songs by Davno, and was followed by a Q&A with director Aldona Watts.
