Pure

Film stills

Kaip nors aš viską paliksiu ir išnirsiu kitoje pusėje… ten, kur tikriau, toliau nuo bjaurios realybės.

Katarina is 20 years old. Her life seems to be already set in stone – until she discovers music. Everything changes when she hears a performance of Mozart’s piece. She feels that she has to change her life and get away from her ugly reality. The path she has to follow proves a treacherous one. Yet Katarina is ready to do anything to gain her new identity.
 
“Pure is one of the world’s most ancient stories; this time, though, it is told from the young woman’s perspective,” said director Lisa Langseth.

Festivals:
