LSM announces the return of its English-subtitled series of documentary films entitled Latvian Code and selected in an annual contest held by Latvian Public Television (LTV). Latvian Code films reflect the extraordinary lives of people in Latvia.

This film, Searchers (Latvian: Meklētāji), probes the activities of the NGO that looks for missing persons and instructs others on how to find them. Since they've started in 2009, they've helped find more than 90 people who had gone missing.

It follows  volunteers during training and on a search mission - theirs is a nerve-wracking task as in many cases they only locate the expired body of the missing person.

"The film is about people who take initiative. When I make movies, I'm interested in finding inspiring stories and uplifting ideas. The goal is that the people who see my film want to get up and do something, even if they start off from the very tiniest things," the director told LSM.

"I aimed to tell a story about how the searchers organize themselves, how they think and present themselves, and what's their mission," he said.

Meklētāji. Latvia, 26 min, 2017. Director: Didzis Eglītis.
