Lina's passion for moving images started while studying journalism in Lithuania and later at the University of Colorado Boulder.

Her next projects explore female cycles and the future of spirituality. Lina's goal as a director is to call in the mystery of life and provoke change by telling compelling real stories. She believes in integral filmmaking, by hiring women and minorities, highlighting and supporting the communities that she films in, and making her film sets plastic-free.
