Jurga Gluskiniene, producer (Lithuania):

I was fourteenth years old when the Soviets decided that the Lithuanians are trying to make a revolution in a country. We were near to strategically important objects: televizijos tower, radio stations with my dad. They were shooting, with tanks crushed innocent people ... We were called provocateurs, but we were fighting for the freedom, for our world what we want to be! And nobody has been able to take away from me the freedom of independence of young people emerging. So now, you have my support of 100 percent, and I believe that young hearts can influence something. The filmmakers can tell a lot in their language! We are with you. Be strong!!!!

 

Petr Lom, director (Canada):

I keep reading about the riots in Kiev now, so just wanted to send you a note saying hello, and to express my solidarity with you!  I hope you find a way to peace soon, and that you don't need to leave your dreams of europe behind...
