The movie is https://www.imdb.com/title/tt7494128/reference. It is a 2017 Lithuanian documentary, which has been registered in IMDb with its international title The Ancient Woods as the reference title (as it very often happens for "exotic" nationalities).
Its lithuanian title Sengire is only registered as the lithuanian imdb display title so far.

I tried to switch them, as the poster in IMDb is the lithuanian one and show SENGIRE in big, and references can be found on the net:
https://www.ffdl.it/it/film/scheda/1135/sengir%C4%96
https://cineuropa.org/film/350657/
https://vimeo.com/45384930

The title switch was rejected.
The Title correction is not monitored by the contribution history, but there were no change, and the deletion of the Lithuanian imdb title (which should have been replaced by the title correction) was rejected on the following ground:


Can IMDb editors reconsider this rejection please?
Or let me know what I am getting wrong here?

Thank you in advance.

Hi Vincent -

I was able to confirm that the title was first screened with the title "The Ancient Woods" at the 2017 International Documentary Festival Amsterdam, since this title is the original title we will need to retain this on the site. 

If "Sengire" is the International title for this film, you are welcome to submit this as an additional Alternate Title, also if the title is being screened in the US under "Sengire" you are welcome to add this as the display title for the US.
