Igor Drozdov’s insightful documentary Shall I? may focus on the current economic plight of his homeland Lithuania, but with the world currently facing a global financial crisis, it is truly a film of universal themes. This is more than a film about monetary restraints though, this is a film about nationality, a film about patriotism and a film about home. Director Igor Drozdov joins us to discuss why he felt it necessary to make Shall I? and the mixed reactions his film has elicited.
Shall I? (2010)
Where is your home? Seems like a simple question, but the answer is not always that obvious, each individual comes from somewhere, goes places, and sooner or later he has to make a decision – where to stay?
I think unless the big questions are asked aloud, no one’s gonna answer them[…]unless people like me start posing these questions, the situation’s not gonna change.
