“Bridges of Time"
Documentary, 78′, Lithuania/Latvia/Estonia, 2018
Kristīne Briede and Audrius Stonys’s meditative documentary essay portrays the less-remembered generation of cinema poets of the Baltic New Wave. With finesse, they push beyond the barriers of the common historiographic investigation in order to achieve a consummate poetic treatment of the ontology of documentary creation.
“Bridges of Time" is a cinematic poem about cinema poets.
