Winner of the World Cinema Directing Award at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, Alanté Kavaïté’s THE SUMMER OF SANGAILE is arguably one of the year’s most visually stunning films. It also happens to be one of the most romantic. Set against the bright summer skies of Lithuania’s countryside, the story begins with a chance meeting between two restless youths – the quiet, angst-ridden Sangaile and her polar-opposite love interest Auste, a beguiling and beautiful fashionista. Sangaile dreams of flying one of the stunt planes that speed through the clouds above her parents’ home, but her vertigo keeps her aspirations grounded. It’s only when Auste prods her to accompany a pilot’s trip that Sangaile forces herself to take a leap of faith. Kavaïté’s film is a cinematographic tour-de-force; her camera defies gravity, soaring high into the sky as well as nestling within the film’s quietest and most intimate moments. THE SUMMER OF SANGAILE moves like a dream, transporting us into a surreal landscape where love and self-fulfillment are just a flight away.
