D is for Division (2017)
Original title: Mūris, Neklidná hranice
Latvia, Czech Republic
Director: Dāvis Sīmanis
An archive photo from 1940 of a murdered woman trying to save her son with her body becomes an inspiration for contemplating over film´s boundaries - geographical as well as metaphorical ones. People on different sides of the Latvian – Russian border sense the import of historical realities in a completely different way. One side associates it with liberation, for the other side it means the loss of freedom. A well-known Latvian author, Davis Simanis, produces an explosive testament about the tension on EU´s eastern borders.
