As so many spy movies have pointed out, Berlin in the 1960s was a focal point for Cold War machinations from both East and West. What’s refreshing about Kristijonas Vildžiunas’ take in Back to Your Arms is his decision to strip away the high-stakes political chess games normally associated with films about this period in order to show the very real effects on normal human beings that these Cold War maneuverings resulted in. It is 1961 and though the construction of the Berlin Wall is still a couple of months away, the struggle for propaganda victories between the Soviet-led East and the capitalist West is at its height. Separated since the last days of WWII, Vladas (Andrius Bialobžeskis), from Soviet Lithuania, and his daughter Ruta (Elžbieta Latenaite), raised in the US but now come to West Berlin to study, are desperate to meet. But Vladas is blanketed with KGB attention. After all, luring his American-raised daughter to East Berlin would be a propaganda coup. Ruta is willing to risk anything to make the longed-for reunion happen….

Director Kristijonas Vildziunas, Actress Elžbieta Latenaite, and Producer Uljana Kim are all expected to attend the 1/09 screening.
