Documentary explores hip trend of leaving Rīga for Latvia's regions

LSM announces the return of its English-subtitled series of documentary films entitled Latvian Code and selected in an annual contest held by Latvian Public Television (LTV).

These films reflect the extraordinary lives of people in Latvia and each year serve as a blueprint of the state of affairs in the private lives and aspirations of today's Latvian residents. 

The third film to be featured, Project: Moving sees a young professional explore and debate the trend of young people leaving Rīga for somewhere more suitable for living, particularly the town of Cēsis in the scenic Vidzeme cultural region. 

"We are simply showing that right now Cēsis has become the hipster capital, and it's not bad at all. It's like a different kind of gentrification, and it affects not just a single quarter, but the entire town," said director Kārlis Lesiņš in an interview with LSM.

To watch the film with subtitles, pick English in the subtitles menu in the player above. 

Project: Moving, Latvia, 2018.

Director: Kārlis Lesiņš
