Deniss. Documentary. Latvia, 2016.
Deniss is a Russian-speaking young man working at a fast food chain and spending his days in a small, gloomy apartment where all the things still remind him of his dead grandmother.
Once a week he takes the stage, becoming a stand-up comedian. His jokes come from his life, which might be called dull as well as bleak, and, as he puts it, his 'uninteresting biography'.
Director: Armands Začs
"I'm neither entirely Latvian, nor entirely Russian. So my grandfather had some Latvian blood... on his hands... Right. That's a good start."
