„Laisvė kurti“/Freedom to Create (EN subtitles), 2011


This documentary film is about the prisoners, creating in places of detention. The film director listens attentively to the prisoners’ stories, where the leitmotifs of mistakes made in life, punishment and creative work, serving as a form of liberation, intertwine. Showing the world through the eyes of prisoners or social underworld, Jansas puts the spectator into such a context, which we normally do not want to know anything about – he treats us with a full-length portion of rich and specific contradictory reality not wrapped into glossy ideological paper, without imposing one truth or any in advance prepared responses.
