Between May 11 and 14, Latvian films and literature will be shown off in Berlin in a festival called "Is it easy to be Latvian/Ist es leicht, Lette zu sein?", the organizers said on May 9.

"We have chosen two thematic alleys for this festival. One of them is Latvian authors' literary works on which many recent films are based. The other focus is the 1990s when the Berlin Wall fell but Latvia regained its independence and started to lay foundation to a free country and nation," said the "Latvian Literature" platform representative Rita Demetjeva.

The festival will include films Jelgava 94, Soviet Milk, Is It Easy to Be Young?, January, The Kiosk, and JacobMimmi and the Talking Dogs. The films will be shown in the original language with subtitles in German.

The festival will take place at the art and culture center Brotfabrik  (Caligariplatz 1, 13086, Berlin). The festival is supported by Latvian Investment and Development Agency (LIAA), Latvian Embassy in Germany and the bookstore Pankebuch.
