Restricted Sensation
by Deimantas Narkevicius

  • Restricted Sensation

"Restricted Sensation" is so far the longest movie made by the Lithuanian video artists Deimantas Narkevicius, who utilizes language of film narration and borrows methods from the cinematographic space.

The artist’s work mostly concern methods of constructing and fabricating history, with particular stress put on Central and Eastern Europe’s communist legacy. Based on a screenplay about archive research and the fetish-like stage set so characeristic of the 1970s, the movie touches upon homophobia in the communist Latvia. The protagonist is arrested and kept in custody where he is subject to interrogation by a Soviet state security (KGB) officer.
