Raktas į ateitį (2010) - Director
"The film “Raktas į ateitį“ (Key to The Future) tells the story of life and work of the Western Lithuanian and Prussian historian, mythologist, ethnographist Matas Pretorijus Klaipėdietis. The scientist who lived on the seaside of the Baltic See, in multicultural environment wrote about the old nations, the lands they dwelled in, their cities, castles, feasts, religions, language, and traditions. The manuscript “Prūsijos įdomybės, arba Prūsijos regykla” (Matters of Interest in Prussia or Prussian Viewing Point) in 18 volumes written by Petronijus stayed in the archives for over 300 years before a small part of it was published for the first time only nowadays (in 1999). According to film-makers, it could become the key to the past, and once we get to know it better, we can unlock the future. Unfortunately, today one can hardly remember the name of Matas Pretorijus, and the fundamental work of his life is known to a very narrow circle of humanitarians only. No portrait of Matas Pretorijus has survived, and we don’t know the place he was buried in. Will we ever evaluate, how much can we lose and how rich can we become if we get to know things?"
