How We Played the Revolution
The story of the film begins in 1984, the very beginning of perestroika in USSR, when a group of architects decided to organize a one night music band as a New Year’s party joke in Kaunas, Lithuania. The joke proved to be so good that rumors about the new exciting rock band Antis spread from lips to lips. Imposing make-up and props, stylized show, and lyrics were creating pervasive caricature of the Soviet propaganda and perfectly discrediting the absurd of the Soviet reality. Soon their intellectual clownery grew into the Rock Marches - massive events involving thousands of people - that transformed into the big meetings for Lithuanian Independence later named the Singing Revolution.
