      EVENT DETAILS
      Latvian Film Club: Grandpa More Dangerous Than Computer

      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).Eight-year-old Oskar’s holidays start miserably; his parents “swap” the computer for his granddad to protect the child from the dangerous influence of the Internet. The old Kode (65) makes him do men’s work and won’t buy him brandname sneakers. Such a granddad is no good for the grandson, and everyone gets to know that Paulis Kode, the active fighter of the Awakening period, is “dead”… The role of peacemaker is undertaken by granny Irma Kode (60), who has lost her teacher’s job because the small town has “run out of” children and the local government deputy Modris (33) has managed to sell the school building. To complete his shady transaction, he offers the teacher a tempting job, and Oskar gets involved in a series of adventures: he teaches his granny to rap, there’s a death threat at the hospital, and French perfume gets sprayed on a goatskin. The granddad’s and grandson’s coordinated fight against the granny’s wrong-doer makes them forget their previous quarrels and stand for eachother.Scriptwriter: Alvis LapiņšCinematographer: Uldis JancisProduction Designer: Mārtiņš MilbretsEditor: Māris BērziņšMain Cast: Markuss Jānis Eglītis, Eva Ozola, Mārtiņš Vilsons, Akvelīna Līvmane, Mārtiņš Meiers, Uldis DumpisProducer: Gatis UpmalisProduction Company: F.O.R.M.A.Supported by: National Film Centre of Latvia#LatvianFilmClub
