Land of Songs

In a region of Lithuania known as the "Land of Songs," five charming grandmothers are the bearers of their village's ancient folk singing tradition. Singing has nourished their lifelong friendships, and helped them to cope with decades of war and occupation. As the village's youth move away, the grandmothers struggle to keep their songs alive.

"Land of Songs" had its world premiere at the Vilnius International Film Festival in Vilnius, Lithuania and its U.S. premiere with the Margaret Mead Film Festival at the American Museum of Natural History in New York, where it was awarded the Margaret Mead Filmmaker Award Honorable Mention. "Land of Songs" was selected for Independent Filmmaker Project's 2014 Spotlight on Documentaries at Film Week in New York and is fiscally sponsored by San Francisco Film Society.
