But also other fights are in progress in this - the last Colonial Empire - the Chechen Republic of Ichkeria - is still fighting with Russians. And Russia behave there nearly the same as was in Baltic states, and even worse. And still no support...
2004, Jonas Vaitkus, Lithuania, 90 min.
With Saulius Balandis, Brigita Bublyte
The most successful Lithuanian film of recent years is this compelling historical drama by leading film and theater director Jonas Vaitkus. Filmed in black-and-white, it tells the true story of legendary freedom fighter Juozas Luksa, who in the 1940s was one of the leading figures in the resistance against the Soviet annexation of Lithuania. After his family was decimated by partisan fighting, Luksa traveled through Western Europe seeking support for the cause and then returned to Lithuania for a final encounter with the KGB. In Lithuanian with English subtitles. 35mm print courtesy of Forum Cinemas. (MR)
The most anticipated film of the year in Lithuania. Well-known theatre and film director Jonas Vaitkus directs a cast of prominent Lithuanian performers in a compelling historical drama that tells the tragic, heroic story of legendary Lithuanian freedom fighter Juozas Lukša and his family. Lukša was a key figure in the Lithuanian resistance against the Soviets, which continued for a decade after 1940's forcible annexation, claimed the lives of 22,000 partisans, and saw some 300,000 Lithuanians exiled or interned. Two of Lukša's brothers were killed in the fighting; two others were sent to Siberia by the Soviets. The toll on the family left Lukša's father a broken man. During the conflict, Lukša travelled to Western Europe as a representative of the underground, lobbying for the cause and seeking foreign support. While abroad, he met and married Nijole, a Lithuanian woman. Lukša returned home to continue the armed struggle, only to fall into the clutches of the KGB at the age of 30.
"June 14, 1988 was the day, when the Lithuanian Freedom League dared to hold a meeting at Gediminas Square. Commemorated at this meeting was the mass exile of the Lithuanian population, which had been started in June of 1941 by Stalin. L. Laurinskas (living in Taurage - Lit.), a post-war resistent, publicly raised the forbidden tri-colour Lithuanian flag during the meeting."
Fell in the battle with Soviet MGB forces in the village of Migdoliskiai, Anyksciai region. He was too brave and to honest to became an ordinary "Soviet citizen", but also to young to die.

Any particular reason for that? This reminds me of some (paradox) commie fighters in Latin America. Type of anarchic nonconformists.
... while living on the very edge (without LSD or other drugs), they really first caught the wind of Freedom, that have came to Free World a bit later in late 60-ties. One of the main signs of it was long hair, as form of protest to the surrounding society and image of free men... So they were the very first hippies for sure! And they set us free!
