The 16th edition of AVANT explores the Baltic countries by inviting three prominent artists: Deimantas Narkevičius (Lithuania), Ieva Balode (Latvia) and Jaan Toomik (Estonia). In addition, two fairly unknown classics will be shown, Virve Aruoja and Jaan Tooming’s Endless day (1971) that was banned by Estonian authorities, and Adolfas Mekas’ rarely screened Wind flowers (1967).
