Riga Pasaules Film Festival 2024

From April 25 to 28

Ross McElwee retrospective and masterclass

The programme of the 11th Riga Pasaules Film Festival is linked together by the theme of "Life".

Cinematic stories that deal with being alive, a notion that focuses on experience, sensitivity and curiosity, rather than on categories embedded in cultural values and represented through language. Instead of reflecting on the question “who are we?”, we want to ask questions like “what matters to us?” and “what drives our existence?”

The special guest of the festival will be Ross McElwee, the renown American cinéma vérité documentary filmmaker and professor at Harvard University, who previously visited Latvia in 1990 shortly before the collapse of the Soviet Union. Q&A sessions with filmmakers after the screenings.

Curators’ Statement: The Problem of Describing Life

The challenge of describing life is that it is a concept with no clear substance. Life describes a process which cannot be seen or apprehended directly, we can only see its effects.
