The Summer of Sangailé

Summer of Sangaile

Aiste Dirziute and Julija Steponaityte in Summer of Sangaile

Sangailé is fascinated by stunt planes. Afraid of heights and 17 years old, she has never dared even to enter one of the cockpits. At a summer aeronautical show, she meets Auste, a local girl of her age. As the two girls become lovers, Sangailé allows Auste to discover her most intimate secret, and finds in her teenage love the only person to truly encourage her in flying. The Summer of Sangailé highlights the gap that separates Lithuanian youth born in a democratic country from their parents, who were raised under a totalitarian regime.
