A Portrait of the Hawk

The Hawk was one of the most well-known Lithuanian resistance fighters during a post war period. It’s a story about a man who was forced to fight soviets who invaded the country post World War II. The Hawk had to keep his family hidden for 11 years and was eventually betrayed and brutally murdered by the soviets. The film is based on a diary of the Adolfas Ramanauskas – The Hawk. It serves as a background for Mantas Petravicius – a painter who tries to paint the portrait of the Hawk. He draws inspiration by visiting the exact places where The Hawk fought and had to hide.
