Janvāris (January) directed by Viesturs Kairišs will attempt to bring the drama of the barricades to a contemporary audience. The 40-minute Vimeo film about this debates the various challenges of doing so in a manner that is both accurate and engaging, particularly with regard to thse too young to have participated in the Barricades themselves.
The video has English-language subtitles.
Produced by Mistrus Media as a co-production of Latvia, Lithuania and Poland, the movie has received support from the European co-production fund Eurimages and you can find out more about it at this Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/JanuaryFilm/
