Lithuanian film director Mantas Kvedaravichyus killed in Mariupol

April 4, 2022

Terrible news: our colleague, Lithuanian film director Mantas Kvedaravichyus, was killed in Mariupol. Initially, the media got information about a rocket hitting the car in which Mantas was. However, a few days later, we all learned the cruel truth about the tragedy:

Not only Lithuania, but the whole world has lost a well-known creator who until the last moment, despite the danger, worked in Ukraine during this terrible war.

It is worth saying that the film "Mariupolis" brought Mantas special fame - perhaps the main chronicle of the life of an ordinary person during the armed conflict in the East of Ukraine, when peace and war become part of one whole.

On behalf of the community, we offer our sincere condolences to the family and friends of Mantas. 💔
