_______________
Prior to forming Ir Visa Tai Kas Yra Grazu (And Everything That Is Beautiful, is beautiful) the Lithuanian avant-rock group in 1987 with artist Arturas Slipavicius, the late countercultural ‘trickster’ Arturas Barysas a notable bibliophile, actor, connoisseur of experimental music wielded his Krasnogorsk-3 16mm camera throughout the pre-Glasnost period of the former Soviet Union of the 1970’s, an era in which ‘longhairs’ and others in open oppositionto the LCP (Lithuanian Communist Party) officially designated ‘amoral delinquents risked amongst other things ending-up face down in industrial slurry in the back alleys or worse – for being in the possession of the ‘wrong’ music.
These previously difficult to attain multiple-copied ‘burnt’ onto DVDs B/W short films passed as contraband between fans within the Baltics and worldwide Lithuanian diaspora throughout the 1980’s until inevitably, following Lithuania’s Independence in 1992 a generation itching to enter the shiny world of Colours Benetton rejecting the reminders of the scarcity of their parents lives, consequently the films partly vanished re-emerging occasionally.
Due to a convergence of interests between Curator / rogue enthusiast David Ellis, Quinton Scott of Strut Records, cross-disciplinary artist Lijana Jakovlevna Siuchina & Dovydas Bluvšteinas Head of Zona Records a joint project evolved in which the previously lost and neglected recordings were assembled. After the combined premier screening of the newly digitized films and release of the Soundtrack LP/CD at MO Museum, Vilnius in April 2022 Ellis decided to program further screenings throughout Europe including London’s reputable Arts Lab IKLEKTIK.
