Lithuania Nominates ‘Conversations on Serious Topics’ for Oscars Foreign Language Category


Conversations on Serious Topics

Lithuania selected Giedrė Beinoriūrė’s documentary film  “Conversations on Serious Topics” for best foreign language Oscar nomination.

“Conversations On Serious Topics” is a film without exterior action, props, landscapes or special effects. Its main characters are children and teenagers with a special ability to describe the surrounding world.

Intimate conversations with them reveal the picture of the modern world – at times melancholic, at times comical, at times dramatic. Shot in a minimalist fashion, the film raises questions about loneliness, love, God, the world and human relations.

“The world is people.” “Don’t you believe in God? I can teach you how to start believing…”
