Film program 'Cinematic trophies’


The project’s “Kino trofejas” (Film Trophies) programme will consist of films made in the post-war time period, between 1940s and 1950s, the films featured in cinema “Splendid Palace” (later called cinema “Rīga”) – around 15 films, made in former USSR republics, as well as France, Italy, Germany and elsewhere. Before film screenings, short informative news pieces, traditional to those times, will also be screened. The project is sort of a time-machine that will bring spectators back in time.
