This film is about a time that is lost forever. In 1995-1996, the cult cafe ‘Suokalbis’ (meaning Plot) in Vilnius, was already losing its splendour, but still served as a gathering place for artists of every age, recognised and unknown, students of all kinds and, of course, random visitors. Back then, ashtrays were overflowing with cigarette butts, bottles were quickly drained, and stormy discussions and dances lasted until dawn. Come the 21st century, café communities like Suokalbis were pushed aside by the rising club culture, and disappeared like alcohol vapours and tobacco smoke.
Artūras Jevdokimovas completed his TV Directing course at the Lithuanian Academy of Music and Theatre, and later studied at the Rustaveli Theatre and Film University (TAFU) in Tbilisi. He had an internship at the Jonas Mekas Film Anthology Archives in New York, and was the founder and supervisor of the International Short Film Festival Tinklai. He has made several documentary films based on ironical life observations.
