I Know You

Aš tave žinau
Director: Dovilė Šarutytė

Lithuania, Drama, 2009, 30 min, lithuanian, V
If you are standing among blocks of flats and don’t see any people around, it doesn’t mean that you are alone. There are thousands of people around you. And they are so close, that you can’t run away. The main character Uršulė is a fifteen-year old girl who feels that her room, her district, her school and even herself is too small for her. She falls in love, gets disappointed, has her eyes open. Sometimes you just have to take a step forward and jump into the water. The girl dives out of the district frames, and there is no need to run away anymore…
2010 – Silver Crane Award for Best Short Film at the Lithuanian Film and Television Awards (Lithuania).
