Spring 2021: while the virus rages, cinemas must remain closed. An enthusiastic cinephile goes on a foray through the disappearing landscape of Latvian movie theatres. Using Super-8 footage of facades and interiors, he discovers the cinema as an indestructible living and experiential space, inextricably linked to the country’s history , as well as formative biographical moments.
