Competition Documentaries, Lithuania / Italy 2015, 72 Min., lit. OV, engl. st

Stories from Lithuania’s largely unprocessed history as a Soviet state: A young freedom fighter and a KGB officer who grew up in the Soviet era made life-changing decisions. Today they are both contemplating their past. After many years in a psychiatric prison, a dissident is released and returns to his wife. She tries to fill the abyss of his memory by helping him to recall his story. A writer in the underground press who had been sentenced to seven years of Siberian exile decides to meet his former interrogator for a cup of coffee. Thirty years after having been arrested in a hotel in Vilnius and kept in isolation for nine months, a collector of antiques returns to the same hotel to look for answers. “When We Talk about KGB” takes a new look at the grief caused by Soviet crimes and the euphoria over Lithuania’s achievement of freedom.
