BLUEBERRY SPIRITS

12 min. 2016, LATVIA (recorded in Latvia)

Directed by Astra Zoldnere

Blueberry Spirits is a poetic documentary about a Roma family that spends its summers in the Latvian forests, picking berries to make a living. While harvesting the fruits of the forest, they reflect on their identity as a group by sharing ghost stories. Surrounded by existential questions on how to balance the future and the past, traditions and modern life, the movie points out their struggle for identity as a journey between night and day, and vice versa.

MUSTIKAVAIMUD

Režissöör Astra Zoldnere

Poeetiline dokumentaalfilm romade perest, kes Läti metsades korjavad elatise teenimiseks mustikaid. Saaki kogudes räägivad nad õudusjutte, milles väljendub nende ühtekuuluvus. Mineviku ja tuleviku, traditsioonilise ja moodsa elu tasakaalus hoidmist puudutavate eksistentsiaalsete küsimuste kaudu näidatakse nende identiteediotsinguid kui rännakut öö ja päeva vahel.
