In the trailer for “The Summer of Sangaile,” writer-director Alanté Kavaïté captures the highs and lows of two young women whose love is forged in the cockpit of a crop airplane. After winning the Sundance Film Festival Directing Award in the World Cinema Dramatic category, the film is also Lithuania’s entry for Best Foreign Language Film consideration at next year’s Oscars.
The official film synopsis reads:
“Seventeen-year-old Sangaile is fascinated by stunt planes. Afraid of heights, she has never dared to even enter one of the cockpits. At a summer aeronautical show near her parents’ lakeside villa, she meets Auste—a local girl who, unlike Sangaile, lives her life to the fullest with creativity and bravery. As the two girls grow closer, Sangaile allows Auste to discover her most intimate secret, and finds in her teenage love the only person who truly encourages her to fly.”
Until the film has its US release on November 27th, you can watch the sweet trailer above.
