Join us for the closing ceremony of the 2018 AABS Conference at Stanford University: The 100th Anniversary of Baltic Independence, featuring the screening of the following film:

Ashes in the Snow (2018)

The 2018 AABS Conference at Stanford University will conclude with the screening of "Ashes in the Snow" (2018). The film is based on the New York Times best-selling novel "Between Shades of Gray" written by Carnegie Medal winning author Ruta Sepetys. The film is produced and directed by Marius Markevicius who previously directed the award-winning documentary "The Other Dream Team" (2012) chronicling Lithuania's Olympic basketball team and their journey to the Barcelona Olympics in 1992. 

In 1941, a 16-year-old Lithuanian aspiring artist, Lina Vilkas, and her family are deported to Siberian labor camps amidst Stalin's brutal dismantling of the Baltic region. Forced to endure the harshest of circumstances, Lina relies on her love of art and unbreakable sense of hope as the only means of survival.

The screening of the film will be followed by a Q&A session with Marius Markevicius and Ruta Sepetys.
