, a subtle satire in the guise of a costume drama, focusing on human relationships with flora and fauna in the wilds of nature.

Speaking about the peculiarities of this year’s edition, festival director Liene Treimane said: “This year has proven that a festival can be different. Cinephiles can still come together despite having to watch films on screens in their homes, and having to distance themselves and observe the multiple restrictions that have been imposed on cinemas. This year, we created a festival like none of us had ever experienced before: it was made up of 129 films and countless online meetings with film professionals from around the world. I would like to extend a special thank you to the festival’s daring team, including the over 100 tireless volunteers, as well as to all of our viewers.”
