    Short film festival on mediation

    The competition has been organised by the National Courts Administration of Lithuania. The videos of the 3 best placed projects are entitled:

    1st place:“Voltage of 220 v” from Jurij Rozovskij: A laconic video about the everyday morning dispute between a husband and his wife… and its peaceful resolution.

    2nd place: “Court Mediation” from Rasa Kilaite: The film depicts the conflict between spouses, which evolves into a divorce and sharing of the property they have in common. In the beginning of the film, a divorce process in court is shown. The second part of the film tells how the dispute could be resolved by mediation.

    3rd place: “Let’s live amicably” from Agne Pocepovic. A look through a keyhole to a conflict through the eyes of children. How long does a child's anger last? How to make peace with a beloved friend or sister? Two sisters – friends were looking for answers to these questions by creating real-life situations and filming each other using the telephone of their mother. Witty and philosophical monologues of the girls were the basis for the film “Let’s live amicably”.
