Comprising the first UK showcase of the very finest in Lithuanian film (when the country was part of the SSSR), Declassified is a groundbreaking exhibition of original posters, telling the story of the ideological and socio-political system and the films it promoted. Providing a rare opportunity for the UK public to view the formerly heavily censored Black and White films, the Rich Mix are hosting a multifaceted program of classic/experimental film, real-time audiovisual performance, music and talks – affording visitors an exciting insight into a culture of contemporary and modern cinema.

Experience a host of cinematic firsts including Adam Wants to Be a Man; the first heavily censored authorial, Chronicle of the Day; a melancholy view of Lithuania and one of Lithuania’s most important films, Feelings; a lyrical poetic composition that won a Jury Prize at Cannes Film Festival in 1975.
Declassified runs from on the 8-30th April 2011 at Rich Mix, 35 - 47 Bethnal Green Road, London E1 6LA
