Ugne Jurgaityte

Film and Television Production - BA (Hons)

I am an aspiring film director, working with short dramas and documentaries. Most of my work explores the topics of social injustice and philosophical dilemmas.

I am involved with multiple different organisations working closely with film and other media platforms. My work history includes BBC Look East, Watersprite Film Festival, Cambridge Film Festival and StoryLab Research Institute.

Born and raised in Lithuania, I bring elements of my culture into my work. My major project Roots, based on Ukrainian/Lithuanian novelist Jaroslav Melnik’s story Roots (2009), explores the topics of grief and loss in a troublesome environment.
