Romas Zabarauskas is one of a very rare breed. He is a queer filmmaker in Lithuania, a country not exactly well- known for its LGBTQ cinema.
Queerguru got to talk with him on the eve on the World Premiere of his latest movie THE LAWYER at London’s BFI Flare LGBTQ Film Festival.
Zabarauskas has skillfully woven together an unusual queer romance that also packs a powerful message about the plight of LGBTQ Syrian refugees stranded in Europe, and at the same gives such a positivity to the film’s queerness. It’s not only all very impressive, but throughly entertaining too.
