Three Days

The work on this film started in late 2008, when “Ledo Takas” proposed to make a doc. about a disbanded black metal band “Dissimulation”. I knew the band, I liked what they do, and I answered I can do it as long as it does not have to be a “regular” format documentary – like talking heads in the grey screen.

So the next thing I knew was us filming in January 2009, with -15 Celsius outside, in the Anykščiai region, trying to make the characters open up at the bonfire; having them totally drunk the day after; having them explaining some photos later on, etc. I wasn’t really happy with the result we’d gotten, so when they released the news about getting together to play their last gig in a huge outdoor metal music festival that would take place at the city they were born in – as people and as a band as well – it was the news that there’s a possibility to make the film work.

Here we were invading their rehearsals three days before their last-ever (or so they told me) live gig, their car, their lives, their backstage, their after-gig tripping. And that was them for real – not trying to set and play some characters in front of a serious camera, but just being them, as some small handheld piece of equipment was recording it all.

A disclosure, a tight relationship, trust, hope, highs and lows, all the discourse cut down to the essential was the outcome of the days along their path.
