Talkers. Documentary. Latvia, 2016. Director: Dainis Kļava
The three speakers represent two of the dialects, with the most common one - the middle dialect spoken in Rīga and central parts of Latvia - not featured in the film.
In intimate surroundings, a farmer, a schoolteacher, and a herder of ostriches talk about perceived differences between Latvian speakers, and about language policy and their lives.
"I am a Latgallian of the big Laizāns clan," says the proud schoolteacher.
