The Black Lives Matter solidarity march in Vilnius was in many ways historical. For the first time in Lithuania racism was condemned to such an extent. For the first time the protest was lead by young people who gathered on Tik Tok. For the first time the main language of the protest was not Lithuanian, but English.

 

A lot of local people didn’t like any of that. NARA documentary aims to capture this generational and political clash.
