Reminiscences of a Journey to Lithuania documents he and his brother’s journey from the United States back to their home village of Semeniškiai, the first visit home since their original departure 25 years prior. It’s a nostalgic exploration of the essence of home, the echoes of memory, and the universal yearning for a sense of belonging.
This screening begins with a poetry reading by Cephalopress, an independent publishing house formed of writers based in Brighton and established in 2018. Borders and Belonging is their first anthology, put together as a way to respond to one of the key questions in our current moment: who are we, and how are we shaped by the spaces we inhabit?
The readings will feature three anthology contributors sharing their pieces from the anthology: Maria Cohut, Hannah Weber, and Tamiko Dooley. Following readings we will have a Q&A where we can further discuss these extremely topical and important themes.
