Festive Programme

00.00 - 00.00

During the Riga City Festival we will travel back in time by viewing Riga on film from the time of the formation of the Latvian State and its first decade — the time period from year 1917 to 1930. The atmosphere of the cinema of that time will be created and there will be screenings of newsreels, documentaries, staged films and other materials that show Riga about a hundred years ago.

The Latvian State was still being formed, but the city had already existed for several hundred years — with buildings from different time periods, a multinational ethnic composition, rich cultural life, and the new media — cinema — recorded various city-related events. The presentation of cinema recordings will be complemented by a programme for children and improvisation theatre performances.
