- March, March! Tra-ta-ta!
November 3 at 4:30 p.m.
West Building Lecture Hall
Released in 1965 by the Lithuanian Film Studio, March, March! Tra-ta-ta! —the first Lithuanian film in color—was a bitter politicalsatire that the audience of the day probably did not recognize as such. Grigory Kanovich and Ilja Rud-Gercovskis co-wrote the screenplay about a delicate personal situation that provokes an absurd accident with a border guard, which, in turn, becomes the pretext for another war between the two bogus neighboring enemy countries, Centia and Groshia. (Raimondas Vabalas, 1965, subtitles, 78 minutes)
