“Paradise Gowns” was shot in Finland 2014 – 2015, will be finally premiered at the Kino Pavasaris | Vilnius International Film Festival and will open the Lithuanian films programme on April 2 in Forum Cinemas Vingis (16:45, 1st hall). It will be the second movie with director Albina Griniute and Benjamin River Productions, but this time its a debut for all of us in a full-length film! Don’t expect the usual documentary film.

The vast Finnish archipelago consists of thousands of rocky islands. It’s a place where time passes differently, the mind has space to wander and even the smallest everyday things can be a source of endless fascination. The film introduces five islanders who, each in his own way, reveal different sides of the archipelago and of the human spirit.

In these remote places, civilization constantly fights and embraces nature and its timeless rules and rites. People, animals and nature become elements of a millennial existence cycle where physical and mental endurance are as important as chance and where life and death constantly meet each other.

Here, in the old wooden house in the centre of the city, daily life is quite similar to what you would see in any children’s home – eating, playing, fighting, and learning important lessons. But this is no ordinary orphanage.
