Energy Lithuania

Deimantas Narkevičius (2000)

// Well, I think my film is sort of an extension of my sculpture.

// In terms of painting and sculpture, Energy Lithuania, which I made two years ago, is an ongoing image like a painting. Even the Super8 colours are not documentation, they don't have much relation with actual colours.

// When I was making the film I was thinking of it as a documentary, but the connections with painting very much emerged during the editing process. It seemed that the editing had much in common with many qualities of painting.

// The documentary element of the film became more distanced. Painting itself cannot really be a documentary - this was a subjective documentary that has a relationship with painting.

// I brought painterly subjectivity into the documentary, meaning that really it was no longer a documentary. With a new film, I'm trying hard to engage myself in certain situations where I do not know what to do.
