The Cabinet

Journalists Dovydas Pancerov and Birutė Davidonytė open the door to the office of the journalistic research department in the editorial office of the portal "15min" in 2019-2020. It was here that the highly acclaimed book "Cabinet 339" was born and the beginnings of the first book "The Speaker and the President" developed. The profession of investigative journalism stirs the imagination, and the viewer may get the impression that a journalist's day is full of action and tension. However, the reality is much more prosaic: hundreds of e-mails, phone calls, small inclusions of personal life that occasionally diversify office life. The film subtly raises questions about the essence of a journalist's work, the duty and responsibility to speak out, as well as the constantly tormenting state of insecurity, when the line between truth and lies is blurring more and more.
