Ten Lithuanian- Russian interviews about the Homeland, 2016


Dimensions variable

The question of Homeland is important to discuss. However, the country author lives in has a negative attitude towards Russians. For this reason and for the political instability, the question of homeland for Russian speakers is very important. Kodzisova asked her friends how they understand the concept of homeland and how they feel living in Lithuania considering that they are Russians. She told them they will be filmed, but no one will be able to see their faces. It was important for author that her friends felt safe, that no one will judge them based on their appearance, but instead listened to their thoughts. She wanted that people could get a possibility to hear each other, and some could just express their feelings and thoughts
