2013 • 90 min • DCP, 16:9 Colour A film about one of the most famous, sophisticated and influential European noblemen of the XV-XVIII centuries - the Radvila‘s (Radziwill) family and his members, who had been one of the wealthiest real estate owners in the Old Continent for several hundred years, defeated a 12 times bigger army of Ivan the Terrible by its own troops in a legendary battle, defended European protestants without being afraid of inquisitional fires and also published the first bestselling travel book about a trip to Jerusalem. It’s a family that has been always noted for its sacrificial manner to others, claiming that “the real fortune of a nobleman is in Heaven, not on Earth”.

The six parts of the film The Age of Czesław Miłosz are comprised of stories told by famous cultural figures who knew Czesław Miłosz and these are interlaced with little-known facts about the poet’s life. The Age of Czesław Miłosz is not merely a biographical narrative or an introduction to the work of a poet considered to be one of the 20th century’s best, but rather an extraordinary peek into the life of the man and his timeless work. At the beginning of a new millennium, his work allows us to focus not on the differences between people, but rather to endeavour to find a commonality for all. COMPLETED

There is a colony of cormorants in the Curonian Spit. While there were just a few birds, they were inscribed into the Lithuanian Red Book. However, the number of birds increased over 30 years and they became the number one enemy in the region. Man felt threatened, because the cormorants took part of the fishermen’s catch and they expanded their territory in the old woods. What is the precise number of birds that would ensure they are not dangerous to consumers? The cormorants’ colony is a splendid example of the relationship between people and their surroundings.
