It’s the year 2000. Aleksandra, a young prosecutor, is handling a human trafficking case. A day goes by at the police station, during which she has to conduct two interrogation sessions. In the first one, Aleksandra faces Andrius – a high-school friend turned suspect, who provokes and undermines her strategy, not leaving her any breathing space. In the second, she talks with Viktorija, the victim who has her own reasons for distrusting law enforcement.
Urtė Sabutytė has a BA in Media Studies from the Vilnius Academy of Arts, and an MA in Cinema Arts from the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre. Her first film “Savi kambariai” (Our Rooms) was somewhere in-between a short film and an art installation. In her second film “Šviesus rytojus” (Dead by Dawn), which premiered at the Scanorama film festival, Urtė started to experiment with elements of genre cinema, which became even stronger intertwined with her personal touch in her graduate movie “Apklausa” (Interrogation). In addition to her creative endeavours, Urtė frequently volunteers and works with different NGOs in the fields of culture and community.
