{mosimage}BERLIN: The Lithuanian feature film Restricted Sensation by a Lithuanian artist Deimantas Narkevicius will take place tonight at the 62nd Berlin International Film Festival. It is important to note that this is the only Lithuanian film that has made it to Berlinale this year and it will be screened as a part of a "Forum Expanded" programme.

Screening 20:00 Friday 17 February at Kino Arsenal 1

Restricted Sensation has already participated in this year's Rotterdam International Film Festival where it competed for the main Tiger award in the category of short films. The film by Deimantas Narkevicius has already caught the attention of Hollywood's major film distribution companies.

When asked about the major factors that have contributed to the international recognition of the film, the director who is in Berlin at the moment and who will be attending tonight‘s premiere, replied briefly that it just happened. "Everything was a success - from an idea to its realization. Everyone was working with great enthusiasm during the making of the film; we were able to inspire the whole team for work which was far from traditional. I gave plenty of room for experimentation for everyone involved in the creative process and it has fully paid off," says the artist.
