“Lithuania is a tiny Eastern European country with approximately 3 million inhabitants. It’s a country of spectacular landscapes, a rapidly growing economy, and people who dream big,” Filmmaker Romas Zabarauskas writes. “The bad news is that our politicians are increasingly pushing a homophobic agenda. Since 2010, a controversial Protection of Minors law, similar to Russia’s anti-gay legislation, has been in force,” he adds before describing his new film project that will delve deep into gay rights in the country through a story about a fictional girl escaping the country. Zabarauskas’ film, You Can’t Escape Lithuania, through Kickstarter, is hoping to raise funds through an unconventional campaign. For backers who donate $50, you’ll receive Director Romas Zabarauskas’ nude pic.
