Elvina Nevardauskaite and David Heinemann co-founded Broken Island Films as a vehicle for the creation of documentary and fiction films providing an alternative point of view on contemporary issues. Elvina graduated from the BA Film programme at Middlesex University, London, in 2014. David graduated from the MFA programme in Film at Columbia University, New York, in 2002. 

The company’s first documentary short, Remember, thou art clay, is currently playing at festivals, making its UK premiere at the London Short Film Festival earlier this year, and its Lithuanian premiere at the Vilnius International Film Festival. In May it was featured at Docaviv in Israel.
