      EVENT DETAILS
      Latvian Film Club: Eight Stars

      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).This film tells about the most striking and tragic phenomenon during the developmentof the self-awareness of the Latvian nation – the Latvian Riflemen. The first Daugavgrīva regiment, the second Riga, third Kurland, fifth Semigallian, sixth Tukums, seventh Bauska and eighth Valmiera regiments of Latvian Riflemen – this was Latvia before its statehood. The film is a historically chronological study beginning with the formation of the Riflemen battalions and their first battles until the end of the Civil War in Russia, when a large part of the Riflemen returned home to the recently established state of Latvia. This is a story about common people challenged by the Big Epoch that determined their lives.Scriptwriters: Askolds Saulītis, Dainis ĪvānsCinematographer: Andrejs VerhoustinskisOriginal Music: Jānis BrunovskisEditor: Askolds SaulītisProducer: Bruno AščuksProduction Company: Studija CentrumsIn Co-production with Terra EuropaSupported by: National Film Centre of Latvia, State Culture Capital Foundation#LatvianFilmClub
