Remembering Petras Abukevičius

On 8th of September, 2018 the famous Lithuanian film director and cameraman Petras Abukevičius would have celebrated his 90th anniversary. After graduating the Institute of Cinematography in Moscow in 1959, for many years P.Abukevičius worked in Lithuanian Film Studio. His creative biography includes about 50 documentaries and science films. But most of all he is known as a master of films about nature.  One film from the series about a little bear Nida "Black storks, little dear and Nida" was awarded with silver medal in the 23rd cinema and TV films festival in New York. In 1987 P.Abukevičius got Lithuanian State Award.

Remembering Petras Abukevičius, who passed away in 1997, we invite to watch the documentary film about M.K.Čiurlionis, created by him in 1965 in Lithuanian Film Studio: http://www.e-kinas.lt/objektas/kinas/2278/m-k-ciurlionis-1875-1911
