British artist and cultural historian David Ellis first came to Lithuania almost twenty years ago. Driven by a curiosity about post-Soviet culture, he has continued to visit frequently over the years. In this film, Ellis travels through Lithuania’s towns, meeting people and discussing how twenty years of independence reflect on their lives. This journey documents Ellis’ encounters with present-day Lithuania and compares it to his early experiences, providing a gauge of the tempo and level of success of the transition.
