In "7 Sins" Inčiūraitė asks seven sportswomen living in seven different Lithuanian cities to speak about their opinions on the seven deadly sins sloth, pride, wrath, gluttony, lust, envy, and greed from a contemporary perspective. The sportswomen chosen for this film compete in one-on-one sports, a metaphorical duality which expresses the two sides of the womens identity the dark and the light. This film is a visualisation of human duality, of the internal personal struggle, constant in both art and life. The documentary paints a portrait of each woman as a contemporary heroine fighting against adversity while at the same time tenaciously working towards their dreams and personal legends.
Shot in the context of the current socio-economic crisis, this documentary was inspired by Kurt Weill and Bertolt Brechts 1933 ballet chanté (ballet with singing) The Seven Deadly Sins (Die sieben Todsünden), which portrays two sisters, representing a dual personality, who travel to seven different cities in search of their fortune during the Great Depression.
