Yesterday was screening of Egle Vertelyte's movie Miracle following with the Q&A session with the director. 

It is 1992 and Lithuania has shifted from communism to capitalism, leaving the small collective pig farm managed by Irena, in dire straits. Irena struggles to keep the farm and her workers afloat when a handsome American, Bernardas, arrives pledging to save the struggling enterprise and turns Irena's family life and routine of the village upside-down. As Irena begins to fall for his charms, she realizes that his intentions may not be entirely innocent...

Egle Vertelyte was born in Šiauliai, Lithuania. She studied history at Vilnius University, filmmaking at the European Film College, and screenwriting at the National Film and Television School, in England. She is the writer of the shorts Robomax (2013) and Romantic Delusions Of The Bird (2014), and director of the documentary Ub Lama (2011). Miracle is her debut feature.
