The second in the season is titled 'Einarative' (Einaratīvs), directed by Betija Zvejniece. It is a portait of poet Einars Pelš and his writings that challenge the traditional boundaries of literature. The film itself sets out to be similarly challenging by means of changes in its visual style and narrative methods and asks the question: what does it mean to be authentic in life and art nowadays?
