Lina Luzyte

(b. 1985, Vilnius) graduated in film direction in Vilnius in 2011; she is now engaged in screenwriting, and in making documentaries and dramas. She has lectured at Lithuania’s Skalvija Film Academy since 2009. Her short dramatic work It Would Be Splendid, Yet (Jau puiki, tir dar siek tiek, 2009) adopts a tragicomic slant as it follows the search for new identities in the Baltics shortly after the fall of the Soviet Union. The documentary Toys (Igrushki, 2010) sketches a portrait of the destitute inhabitants of a Belarusian provincial town who earn a living selling stuffed animals to passing international train passengers while being chased by the police. Her feature debut Together For Ever (2016) uses the relationships within a three-member family to investigate what a person is willing to do in order not to feel alone.
