By Auksė Kancerevičiūtė

    Rising young Lithuanian director Kristina Buožytė is currently working on her second feature film, Vanishing Waves (Aurora). Buožytė‘s first feature, The Collectress, won the Lithuanian national cinema award "Silver Crane" as Best Lithuanian Feature in 2008 and the Best Director Award at the Russian Film Festival Kinoshock (2008) and participated in more than 30 international film festivals.

    {mosimage}Vanishing Waves is a sci-fi romance and an unconventional love story presented as a psychological techno thriller. Following a scientific experiment, an inhibited young man undergoes an astonishing journey into the mind of a comatose woman. Freeing his instincts and hidden fantasies little by little, he engages in the process of metamorphosis. The contemporary tale explores the nature of desire by exposing links and contradictions between human body and mind and their effect on the identity of the person.

    The filmis produced by the Lithuanian production company Tremora (www.tremora.com) and managing producer Ieva Norviliene, along with the French company Acajou Films (www.acajoufilms.com) and managing producer Pascal Judelewicz.

    The film is funded by the Lithuanian Ministery of Culture (www.lrkm.lt), Lithuanian Culture and Sport Support Foundation (www.krf.lt) and EU programme MEDIA. The budget is 1.3 mln. Euro.
