A film by Jonas Trukanas

Lithuania, 2022, 87'

"Be hunters, not prey." After the graduation party organised by the school's basketball star, Rimas, is cancelled, Marius invites his class to a remote cabin that his mother is brokering. All to impress Brigita, a classmate with whom he is secretly in love. Arrived at the place, barbecue in the making, and music speakers blasting, the rave is lined up. However, the evening takes a macabre turn when two of them drag a wooden statue from a circle with other monoliths to the party. Little by little, the group is slaughtered by a mysterious masked figure. Nominated for Best Baltic film at the Tallinn Black Nights Film Festival, this first (ever) Lithuanian slasher film surrounded by folklore ambience is inspired by a nocturnal interaction between the director, Jonas Trukanas, and a statue of the Pensive Christ (a religious figure common in the Baltic countries) in the woods.
