Event description

Description

In this romantic comedy of errors and intrigues based on the novel of Anslavs Eglitis, in late 1930s Latvia, the talented but poor artist Juris arrives in Riga from the countryside. At the same time, the arrogant and wealthy artist Eizens returns from a set of painting sessions in Paris, determined to get his hands on his rich uncle’s estate. Both young artists come under the influence of art critic and pathological intriguer Kurcus, who hatches an elaborate plot to promote Juris at the expense of Eizens.

All goes according to plan until the beautiful artist Ciemalda enters the picture — and triggers a chain of unexpected events that will change the lives of everyone.

Homo Novus is one of six feature movies (and the only comedy) included in National Film Centre programme “Latvian films for Latvian centenary.” The national premiere of the movie took place on September 26th, 2018, and subsequently became the most popular Latvian-produced film in cinemas in 2018.

A special guest speaker will introduce the film before the screening.

Film screening made possible with the assistance of Film Angels, New York Latvian Organization (NYLOP), and Consulate of Latvia in New York
