The Summer of Sangailé / Sangailé

International Feature Film Competition

Shy seventeen-year-old Sangailé loves acrobatic flying, although the aeroplanes whirling in the sky equally scare and attract her. She spends the summer with her parents in a sleepy lake district of the northern countryside, where she meets a sensually beautiful local girl, Austé, at the flying competition. The friendship leads irresistibly into passionate love, and Sangailé discovers hidden desires in Austé's arms. The mutual trust in the budding relationship helps her find the strength to face her innermost fears and secrets never told to anyone. Yet autumn chills slowly creep to the lakeside, marking the end of the carefree summer. The winning film of the international section at Sundance, directed by Lithuanian Alanté Kavaité, tells the story of the uniqueness of first love which awakens feelings of soaring ascent as well as the free fall of acrobatic flying, and when it leaves, your life is never again the same.
