Three for the Weekend in Latvia: Eurocrats on film, modern art, flea market

A documentary on Brussels, a virtual showcase of modern art, as well as a regular flea market is in the program for this week's events in Latvia.

Eurocrats redeemed

Brussels, a documentary on Latvians working in Brussels is being screened over the weekend at K Suns and Splendid Palace film houses over the weekend. Directed by Inese Kļava of Dokumentālists fame, it examines the life of people dedicated to the European idea at a pressing time for the union. It will be screened with English subtitles.

"Who loves Europe, really? Who will defend it? Aren't the 70 years of piece and cooperation just a nice dream which we'll awake from tomorrow?" the film's description reads.

The great modernists

Very much a commercialized event though probably of interest, The Great Modernists multi-media show promises to provide an immersive virtual experience of modernist art, including pieces by Klimt, Monet, Degas, and others.
