Documentary records the rise of women's stand-up comedy in Latvia

The Latvijas kods (Latvian code) documentary film strand from Latvian Television has another offering available to view online with English subtitles.

Vārdotājas (Wordsmiths) traces the recent rise of women's stand-up comedy, but it is by no means just for laughs. Feelings of discomfort, shame, shock, are just some of the subjects tackled.

Poet Inga Gaile and playwright Aiva Birbele, along with their colleagues, dare to transform painful experiences, break stereotypes and - hopefully - make the audience laugh at the same time. The film is directed by Adriāna Roze and can be viewed above. English subtitles can be selected in the embedded player.
