The film Scena, which was inspired by the modernist architecture of the Contemporary Art Center in Vilnius, then highlights the discrepancy between form and function.
The Role of a Lifetime
The film features an interview with British filmmaker Peter Watkins, who talks candidly about himself, politics and the documentary process. We hear Watkins’s voice as pencil drawings and flickering footage of a touch football game on England’s Brighton Beach roll surreally before us. While Watkins speaks about challenging the authoritarian constructs of documentary film, delineating a decidedly anti-establishment artistic position, one realizes that he serves as an alter ego for Narkevicius himself.
