Audrius Stonys

Independent documentarian. Since the end of the 1980s, when he first became independent, he has made almost twenty films that have received many international awards. In 1992, he was the first Lithuanian to receive the European Film Academy’s FELIX award for Best European Documentary of the Year for his film Earth of the Blind. He has lectured in Denmark, Japan, Stanford, Barcelona, and Lithuania. As far as film is concerned, for him the issue of freedom is more important than any aesthetic criteria.
