Land of Songs
(Aldona Watts, 2015, Lithuania/USA, 60mins, PG)
In a region of Lithuania known as ‘Land of Songs’, five sprightly elderly women have kept their village’s ancient folk singing tradition alive through decades of war, occupation, and desertion. Aldona Watts’ debut feature is a tender record of the lives of these remarkable women, and an eloquent testament to heritage and the universal language of folk music.
