Community Gardens / Kolektyviniai sodai

Vytautas Katkus
A grown-up son goes on a countryside trip with his ageing parents in the hopes of reigniting the relationship, but there is nothing left to reignite. This story of familial dysfunction is set against the picturesque backdrop of a dacha community (instantly recognisable to every post-Soviet native), rendered by Vytautas Katkas with irony and a rare sympathy for his hapless subjects.

Born in 1991 in Vilnius, Lithuania, Vytautas Katkus graduated with a bachelor's degree in cinematography from the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre. He works as cinematographer on films as well video art projects. Kolektyviniai sodai (Community Gardens), his debut short film, was selected for the 58th Semaine de la Critique at the Cannes Film Festival.
