United Kingdom / Lithuania 2016, 9 min, Lithuanian, Hebrew & English subtitles
Workers, machinery, production floors… all are tired, worn down, out of date, invariably covered in a fine dust. And yet, they refuse to give up the ghost. Lithuania’s oldest factory continues to churn out clay bricks. The life force of this place is the memories that keep this world from crumbling.
