Introduction by director Anna Viduleja on Dec. 7

In 1930s Riga, if you aren't part of the in-crowd of the bohemian art scene, you might as well put away your brushes. Juris Upenājs, a poor young artist from the rural outskirts, is determined to break into the scene, and finds the love his life at a party on his very first night in town. From there, he's off to the races, bumping up against the established elites and a rival artist just back from Paris in this hilarious and touching historical tale. Anna Viduleja's award-winning feature debut is a romantic comedy of errors and intrigues. DIR/SCR Anna Viduleja; SCR Maureen Thomas; PROD Ivo Ceplevičs, Jānis Kalējs. Latvia, 2018, color, 123 min.
