Movie Info

In 1944, Soviet forces occupied Lithuania for the second time. At the first occupation. 1940‐41, the government offered no resistance and the Lithuanians had quickly learned the brutal lessons of Communism. This time, they decided to resist. Tens of thousands of young Lithuanian men and women from the villages, schools and universities took to the forests and formed a guerrilla movement, the so‐called Forest Brothers. One of their most charismatic leaders was Juozas Luksa, an architecture student. Along with his three brothers he joined the underground resistance, challenging the Soviets for years to come. In 1947 Luksa broke out from the Soviet Union to seek support and to tell the tale of Lithuanians desperate resistance to the West. (C) Forrest Bros

Once it gets going, The Invisible Front slaps us in the face with just how savagely the Soviets treated Lithuanians they believed to be part of the resistance
