On 11 October, 7 pm. Kaunas Artists’ House invites to the opening of the festival’s “Incovenient Films” program in Kaunas. It will be opened by a documentary „Now Something is Slowly Changing“ (dir. Menna Laura Meijer, 2018. Netherlands / 105 min. / G).
“Ten churches are closing down each week, and I think that’s the reason why there’s such a big demand for coaching,” says one of the many speakers in this documentary. We visit therapy sessions with animals, such as pig massage and leadership training with horses, a presentation about happiness for elementary school kids, a “coping with tension and aggression” course in a municipal law enforcement department, and a vlogger trying to calm her stressed-out followers with gentle, relaxing sounds, to name a few.
Language: Dutch, subtitles: Lithuanian, English. After the film – laughter therapy session.
