THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELED. PLEASE VISIT THE WEBSITE FOR UPDATED INFORMATION.

Join us on Thursday, September 15, 2022 at 6:30 pm EST for a ZOOM Conversation with filmmaker Romas Zabarauskas. Presented in conversation with SNMA Executive Director Hunter O’Hanian, Romas will discuss his film, The Lawyer.

About the Filmmaker
From the Berlinale debut of his short PORNO MELODRAMA (2011) to his third feature THE LAWYER (2020) – selected for 30+ festivals, including 7 opening, centerpiece or closing ceremonies – Romas Zabarauskas is an inspiring queer success from the New East. This Baltic enfant terrible introduced diversity to Lithuanian screens, delivering genre-bending films and reflecting on the (im)possibility of meaningful political action. Based in Vilnius with his boyfriend Kornelijus, Romas gives back to the LGBT+ community through his activism, recognized with the Harvey Milk Foundation’s LGBTQ Champion Award in 2021.

Film Synopsis
Life drifts by for an affluent gay corporate lawyer Marius, his time spent hosting dinner parties, enjoying art, and chasing young lovers. One day, Marius’ estranged father dies. Mourning turns to love as the lawyer finds an unexpected connection with a sex-cam worker Ali – a bisexual Syrian refugee stuck in Belgrade.
