Rīga Gentlemen. Documentary, Latvia, 2015

Director: Adriāna Roze

Rīga Gentlemen is a story about modern urbanites - people who unite in present-day tribes and adapt to the new order. The film follows in the tracks of one of these urban groups - four bicycle couriers in Rīga. Their intercom conversations reveal the group's inner workings and relate things seen in the city, while the four heroes themselves show how different personalities add up to a single collective.
