Watch: Latvia gets enigmatic and magnetic

Take note – story published 7 years ago

The agency charged with promoting Latvian business, the Investment and Development Agency of Latvia (LIAA) has produced an enigmatic new video clip.

Filmed in the style of 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' and in widescreen format, the 30 second clip shows two dancers dressed in what appear to be religious robes running through a leaf-strewn frozen forest and then wordlessly but not breathlessly whirling each other round a bit.

This is followed by the slogan 'Magnetic Latvia'. 

According to accompanying text, the film clip is explained thus:

"Latvia’s magnetism is connection of cultures, nations, geographic borders, sea and coastal lines, four seasons, people and business ideas.

Excitement of ideas and belief in dreams.

Talents in art, culture, music, architecture, science.

Passion/determination in sports.

Depth in education, research, technologies.

Devotion for nature, values, language, ancestors, history, traditions."
