7.24.17: Super Labi Sound We See

Although The Sound We See: A Riga City Symphony will have its “real” premiere as the opening film of the 2017 Riga International Film Festival in September, tonight we celebrate with filmmakers, friends and family in the cozy Kanepes Kultūras centrs Kino. We laughed, we cried, we felt the analog love. Thank you Žanete for your vision, thank you Daiga, Mairita and Arterritory for the support, thank you Lāsma, Ieva and Baltic Analog Lab for the cinematic home, and thank you Agnese Krivade, Aigars Bikše, Anda Lāce, Andris Freibergs, Ansis Starks, Atis Jākobsons, Evelīna Ozola, Gunārs Binde, Ieva Epnere, Jānis Putniņš, Karlīna Vītoliņa, Katrīna Neiburga, Kristiāns Brekte, Krišs Salmanis, Maija Kurševa, Mārtiņš Grauds, Miķelis Baštiks, Miķelis Putniņš, Pauls Bankovskis, MAREUNROL’S, Sergejs Timofejevs, Odrija Fišere, Signe Birkova, and Viesturs Meikšāns for taking this journey with us… Your vision of Riga is powerful, unique and wondrous to behold!

7.22.17: Watch It

Although we enjoyed a few little adventures in the early afternoon (some romantic music by our favorite trumpet-and-accordian duo, a visit with the renegade tea lady outside Kalnciems Market and an encounter with the Boo Radley of Kipsala Island), the star attraction of the day was the Latvian National Museum of Art where we had a lot of fun seeking out pictures featuring pets and feet and admiring the gallery guards including our favorite gallery guard of all: Lāsma!
