AThe film direc­tor Arū­nas Matelis will at­tend the event. The event starts at 18:00.

The project is co-or­ga­nized by the Min­istry of Cul­ture and the Azer­bai­jan Union of Cine­matog­ra­phers.

"Won­der­ful Losers: A Dif­fer­ent World " (2017) is a Lithua­nian doc­u­men­tary film di­rected by Arū­nas Matelis about the Giro d'Italia, an an­nual mul­ti­ple-stage bi­cy­cle race pri­mar­ily held in Italy.

It was selected as the Lithua­nian en­try for the Best For­eign Lan­guage Film at the 91st Acad­emy Awards.

For most of us, those cy­clists run­ning at the back of the race are sim­ply the losers. They are called wa­ter car­ri­ers, do­mes­tics, gre­gar­i­ous, who sac­ri­fice their ca­reers and per­sonal vic­to­ries, so their team lead­ers can win the race.

Arunas Matelis fol­lowed these San­cho Pan­zas of pro­fes­sional cy­cling for 7 years dur­ing the pres­ti­gious Giro d’Italia and re­veals the un­seen world of these won­der­ful losers of pro­fes­sional cy­cling from the point of view of the doc­tors’ team.
