“The Men of Gariunai” (1995) is a short documentary about Lithuanian car dealers and resellers. Newly re-established country’s economic hardships forced men of various professions to use newly opened Western borders and drive thousand killometers looking for a perfect used car. Amazingly badly translated it is also a curious and emotionally moving glimpse into a certain time in history and its generation.
Much like digital ice.
“Since 1950 I have been keeping a film diary. I have been walking around with my Bolex and reacting to the immediate reality: situations, friends, New York, seasons of the year. On some days I shoot ten frames, on others ten seconds, still on others ten minutes. Or I shoot nothing…. Walden contains material from the years 1964-1968 strung together in chronological order.” – Jonas Mekas
