The video "A look at Latvia: pictures of young Europeans"

Monday 28 th February 2011

More than six months after my trip to Latvia, I watched 5 hours of video I shot to make a documentary of 12 minutes with the European citizenship as main theme.

Through nine young people interviews from different nationalities and diverse backgrounds, my goal was to show Latvia through the eyes of its people and especially young people who are trying to build it.

They just talked to the camera and offer a particular glimpse on their lives, revealing their doubts, fears, but also opportunities, dreams to offer a rich melting pot of interculturality.

Nine young Europeans from France, Austria and focus on their European citizenship and what it can offer to them. They all live in Latvia and they are presenting the country as they see it, with its difficulties and opportunities.
