THE INVISIBLE FRONT

DIRECTOR: JONAS OHMAN, VINCAS SROUGINIS - LITHUANIA

The Invisible Front was the code name used by the Soviet Union’s Interior Forces for the armed resistance in Lithuania, a key occupied territory. The resistance arose with hardly any outside support during World War II, continuing in various forms until the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991. The film tells the story of one of the most significant anti-Soviet resistance movements through the words and experiences of its leaders, Juozas Luksa and his fellow Forest Brothers. Luksa risked his life to escape to Paris in 1948, joined up with Western intelligence agencies, wrote a memoir, and married Nijole, the love of his life. Shortly after their wedding, Luksa was air-dropped back into Soviet Lithuania by the CIA to help liberate his country. In English and Lithuanian with English subtitles.
