"Behold, Vilnius" -is a film about love – a love for a city and for its citizens, which is why it consists of images of people engaged in various activitiesis populated by images of a city that were shot by old masters and contemporary photographers; they are images of a city that is and has been lived in.
At times we see these people, while at others they have just passed by, or are about to arrive – or else it’s the city’s walls that tell their tales of the physical contact, glances, and sighs they have taken in down through the centuries.
First and foremost, this film is a narrative that reveals a certain way of looking at life and at the things in it – the things that best reveal Vilnius’s spirit.
Contemporary technology was used to draw forth the dynamic features of the images gathered, which can now be appreciated far differently than if they were published as an album. This approach also permits the photographs’ narrative qualities to shine through – as if the subjects captured have been placed under a magnifying glass and can now be investigated to uncover their interrelationships, or their existence as separate artefacts.
