"Melleņu gari" D: Astra Zoldnere, CI: Kaspars Brakis, ED: Astrida Konstante, LV 2016

Running time: 12’40”

A poetic documentary about a Roma family that spends its summers in the Latvian woods, picking berries to make a living. While harvesting the fruit of the forest, they reflect on their identity as a group by sharing incredible ghost stories. Surrounded by existential questions on how to balance the future and the past, traditions and modern life, this metaphysical documentary points out their struggle for identity as a journey between night and day, and vice versa.
