Lithuania has selected "Wonderful Losers. A Different World", a documentary directed by Arūnas Matelis, as its entry for an Academy Awards nomination in the best foreign-language film category.
Wonderful Losers. A Different World

The decision was made by the Lithuanian Oscar Committee, the Lithuanian Film Center said on Thursday.

"Wonderful Losers. A Different World" uncovers the invisible side of Giro d'Italia, one of the harshest and most popular cycling races in the world. Matelis was the first film director in 40 years to be allowed to shoot the race from inside.
