Movie for our Times “Land of Songs

"Inspired by their grandmother’s vivid accounts of her WWII-era childhood, filmmakers Aldona (director) and Julian Watts (cinematographer) travel to Dainava, Lithuania, a region known as the “Land of Songs,” where they meet a sprightly group of women who have kept their village’s ancient folk-singing tradition vibrant and essential through decades of war, occupation, and youth flight. Land of Songs is a tender, poetic record of the lives of these remarkable women and an eloquent testament to heritage—and to the universal language of folk music."
