Mantas Kvedaravičius Retrospective (2)

Mantas Kvedaravičius was a Lithuanian filmmaker, anthropologist and archeologist whose work is a monument to everyday life lived in the midst of, and despite, war. Often blending documentary and fiction, he captured the experience of conflict in Chechnya (Barzakh, 2011), Ukraine (Mariupolis, 2016; Mariupolis 2, 2022) and in the oneiric spaces of “dispossession and desire” (Parthenon, 2019; Prologos, 2021). In March 2022, while filming what would become MARIUPOLIS 2 with Hanna Bilobrova, he was captured and killed by Russian forces in Mariupol. The retrospective includes conversations with some of Kvedaravičius’ close collaborators, which will take place after the screenings.
