Latvijas kods. Dokumentāla filma. «Skaistai būt»

Documentary traces young Latvians' thoughts on "being beautiful"

The 'Latvian Code' series of documentary films has another episode for you to watch online, complete with English-language subtitles.

Titled Skaistai būt ("To be Beautiful") it explores issues of beauty and acceptance in a culture increasingly saturated with idealised and unattainable ideals of femininity. 

It is a story about the world of young girls in today's Latvia, based on conversations about girls' attitudes towards theworld and their place in it.

The film is a slice of the daily lives of girls and young women, constantly influenced by social media and documented by smartphone. The characters in the film reveal the various influences and relationships that make both give them confidence and take it away.

We hope you enjoy the film and find it interesting. It was directed by Andra Doršs.
