With Julija Steponaityte, Aistė Diržiūtė, Jūratė Sodytė.Winner of the World Cinema Directing award at the Sundance Film Festival, The Summer of Sangaile is a visually ravishing, sun-kissed coming of age romance. Seventeen-year-old Sangaile is enamored with the idea of becoming a stunt pilot, but is crippled by her fear of heights. When she meets the free-spirited Auste at an air show, the two begin an all-consuming summer love affair that emboldens the timid Sangaile to pursue her dreams. Bathed in the golden hues of summer light, this blissful tale of erotic awakening is a gorgeous evocation of young love.
