Directed by Dovilė Šarutytė • 2021 • Lithuania
Intensely personal and sincerely relatable, Feature Film About Life announces writer-director Šarutytė as a major new figure in Baltic film. Protagonist Dovilė's life is shaken by her father’s death. But there is no time to mourn, as she must urgently organise the funeral. Taking care of every detail, she finds herself in increasingly curious situations. Meanwhile, her childhood memories, stored away in home videos and photographs, return to the surface. Expertly navigating the question of grief and recovery without resorting to cliché or melodrama, Šarutytė finds paradoxical joy in despair.
