Proud & nerdy: young Lithuanian folkdancers - a mini-documentary
Posted June 3rd, 2011 - 10:23 pm by from Tucson, United States (Permalink)

The winner of worldnomads.com's 2011 "Local Encounters" video documentary scholarship will receive a trip to northern Australia for a week with Yolngu aboriginal people, under the mentorship of Nat'l Geo filmmaker Trent O'Donnell. My local encounter? Stumbling across some average American teenagers who are pretty darn proud of their nerdy Lithuanian double-life. You can watch the 3-minute documentary here - http://bit.ly/lxgwiK - if you enjoy it, please share the link, "like", and tweet FTW to help me make more documentaries! Thanks!

P.S. - In 2012, Boston will host the XIV Lithuanian folk dance festival Šokių Šventė!
