From Vilnius, Lithuania, especially for L&F: with a tent, a sleeping bag, a flashlight and a map in a Lada Samara through Udmurtia, a sovereign republic within the Volga District of the Russian Federation, drugs and prostitution near Vilnius’ railway station and RasaJ and Egyboy show ‘Love’ on super 8. And: in a sailboat crossing the Atlantic searching for an island of plastic, a new pearl of the VHS collection and DJ Popshopsoukoussoundsystemcart.
Lost & Found is a night of stray images and sounds. The programme is compiled from received and selected material by Joris Lindhout and Julia van Mourik.
