OPEN THE DOOR TO HIM WHO COMES
ATVERTI DURIS ATEINANČIAM
Directed by Audrius Stonys
1989 / 10’ / Lithuanian Film Studio
Original version: Lithuanian
The meditative landscape of a Lithuanian village filled with silent prayer. Tree crowns, church roots, and a rural homestead offer a silent sanctuary that withstands the pressures of the totalitarian regime. Stonys foreshadowed his cinematic liturgy of ordinariness with his directorial debut.
