      Latvian Film Club: 1906

      Embassy of Latvia, in partnership with the National Film Center of Latvia, presents the Latvian Film Club - film series from June 2019 to May 2020. Most active movie goers will receive prizes in May 2020. Registration required via Eventbrite (free tickets).During the turbulent final stage of the 1905 revolution, the destinies of various people unexpectedly intertwine in Riga against a backdrop of dramatic events. After an unsuccessful attempt to rob a factory cashbox, the social democrat fighter Pelēkais takes temporary refuge in the countryside in the home of his friend and fellow-fighter Alberts. There Pelēkais meets Albert’s niece, the idealistic teacher Violeta, who excels among the provincial intellectuals with her radical views and ambitions in poetry. Both develop romantic feelings for each other and soon they go to Riga again – Pelēkais on a mission, but Violeta to conquer her place in the literary community. Violeta gets involved in carrying out the fighting plans of Pelēkais, while her poetry creates a sensation among decadent writers. Unexpectedly, Alberts is arrested and killed – Violeta loses a close relative and Pelēkais his friend and fellow fighter. Both decide to avenge Albert’s death and leave Riga forever.Scriptwriters: Gatis Šmits, Inga RozentāleCinematographer: Jurģis KminsProduction Designer: Nerijus NermontasOriginal Music: Rihards ZaļupeMain Cast: Inese Pudža, Mārtiņš Kalita, Kaspars Zvīgulis, Gatis GāgaProducers: Gatis Šmits, Reinis KalviņšProduction Company: TankaSupported by: National Film Centre of Latvia#LatvianFilmClub
