This is the fourth film by a Lithuanian director ever nominated for the European Film Academy Award and the first one since 2005, the Lithuanian Film Centre said.
“I’m Not from Here” tells the story of Josebe, an elderly Basque woman from San Sebastian who lives in a nursing home in Santiago de Chile. Every day she believes that this is the first day of her visit at the home, and each time she has to realize that it is not.
The film has won the Prix EFA Krakow 2016 as the best short film at the international Krakow Film Festival and, at the same time, secured a nomination for the 29th European Film Awards in the short film category.
“I’m Not from Here” is a co-production of Lithuania, Denmark and Chile and is the first result of cooperation between the Lithuanian Film Centre and the Copenhagen International Documentary Festival.
