Dinner

Documentary / 28 min /2013 /  DCP / Monoklis

Synopsis

There is an old building standing in Vilnius, Liepkalnis Street. Every day between 1 p.m. and 4 p.m. people can see a diverse crowd standing by the entrance. Most of the crowd lives on the periphery of society, having no status or stable income. The search for a hot meal brings them all here, but it provides more than just food for their stomachs. The half hour of waiting in the queue is the time when these people can open up to each without feeling ashamed. Rejected by respectable society, they are destined to be among the brothers and sisters who have lost their social skin and privacy barriers.
