THE POET

A new teacher comes to a remote village school in 1947. The famous journalist and respected poet was demoted for illegal publications and banned anti-Soviet verses. Distrustful residents still prefer to test his loyalty, while children willingly recite his verses from To My Soviet Fatherland, written under pressure to denigrate Uncle Lenin. Finally, an unforgotten friend shows him a secret, wintry way to the underground bunker of the Dainava resistance train.

"The Poet" won the Best Baltic Feature Film award at the PÖFF Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival 2022.
