Detective Mārtiņš. Documentary. Latvia, 2015.
Director: Agnese Laizāne
Mārtiņš, even though he's already old and could spend his days in retirement, gives his time and effort to locating missing people - people with whom his clients have lost touch, like relatives, contacts, friends, and sometimes even loved ones from the halcyon days of youth. Mārtiņš has helped find over 600 such lost people within a few years. The film relates several of Mārtiņš's stories - sisters who've found one another after 50 years, a young girl desperately trying to find her mother after adoption, and others. Learn what's it like to be a private investigator in this day and age, and what drives the senior from Jelgava to dedicate himself to the life stories of others - without any reimbursement, it must be added.
