Documentary films in focus at Brussels festival

A number of documentary films from Latvia have been screening as part of the Millenium International Film Festival in Brussels this week, part of the cultural program of the Presidency of the Council of the EU in the Union's capital city.

On Thursday the festival will host a ‘Special Latvia Night’ at the Espace Senghor, with an early showing of Laila Pakalniņa’s “Hotel and the Ball” at 18:30 and later Herz Frank’s “les 7 Simeon”, with a reception in between organized jointly with Latvia’s Embassy to Belgium.

Also shown at the Millenium Festival were Herz Frank’s study of convicted death-row murderer Valerij Dolgov, Pakalniņa’s work “The Chimney” featuring child’s play in daily life, and a study based on a photo from the Holocaust “Madonna with Child”.
