The Finnish Guy in Lone. Documentary, Latvia, 2014
Director: Dzintars Dreibergs
Viktors is a businessman offering a unique range of services: in the canteen of the former state farm he has created a pub, a bakery, a spa, a hotel and the office of a travelling shop. Viktors also has a good knowledge of life: he knows the right ways to spend the day, and his words are justified, because the village, with a population of almost five hundred, has no unemployment.
Lone is a vibrant centre; there are young people; and almost fifty people run their own businesses in the surrounding area; in the evenings, residents from various generations come together at the pub. Viktors tells with pride of his business and the village.
