Lithuanian cinemas helped celebrate Rainbow Days once again! At 4 pm on May 17th, 2015, the national LGBT* rights organisation LGL invited the public to a screening of the Italian film “Loose Cannons,” which was held at the “Pasaka” movie theatre in Vilnius.
The film “Loose Cannons” (“Mine Veganti”) (2010) is a witty, ironic, and somewhat dramatic film about daily LGBT* life under the scorching Italian sun. Tommaso is the youngest son of a large, traditional Italian family, who finally dares to tell his family that he likes men at the Sunday dinner table. Who would have thought that his brother would blindside him by coming out first!
The Embassy of Italy and the Italian Cultural Institute generously provided the film for viewing. Additional screenings of “Loose Cannons” will take place in Kaunas (“Romuva” movie theatre, Laisvės a. 54, Kaunas; May 19th, 4 pm) and Klaipėda (Klaipėda County Ieva Simonaitytė Public Library, Herkaus Manto g. 25; May 20th, 4 pm).
