Art Film Fest with Julija Steponaityte

The Summer of Sangaile, vying for the Blue Angel trophy in this year’s main festival competition, will be personally introduced at Art Film Fest by actress Julija Steponaityte. The film was premiered at Sundance, where it earned Lithuanian director Alanté Kavaïté the festival’s Directing Award. It centres on the quiet, introverted girl Sangaile, who meets a confident, decisive young woman while summering in the countryside. The two gradually discover what life has to offer, and their closeness gives rise to an intimate secret. AFF will be screening the film on 22, 23 and 25 June.
