LITHUANIA AND THE COLLAPSE OF THE USSR, 2009

This video is made up of footage that I took with my Sony from the television newscasts during the collapse of the USSR, with the home noises in the background.
It’s a capsule record of what happened and how it happened during that crucial period as recorded by the television newscasters.
It can be also viewed as a classic Greek drama in which the destinies of nations are changed drastically by the unbending, boarding on irrational, will of one single man, one small nation determined to regain its freedom, backed by olympus in its fight against the Might & Power, against the Impossible.
