After six years of inactivity, Lithuanian director Sharunas Bartas will star this year’s retrospective with the release of his movie Peace to Us in Our Dreams. His works include twelve feature films and short films picturing to perfection the contemporary world: misery, loneliness, communication problems and the search for a better future that looks unreachable. Bartas is a filmmaker of the limits that confronts men with space while losing them in big expeditions. His films are a living physical experience in which people and places turn out to be decisive. His films will be featured in collaboration with the Filmoteca de Catalunya, a special opportunity to discover an unparalleled auteur in our screens with films like Indegene de Eurasie or The House (starring Valeria Bruni-Tedeshi and Alex Descas).
