About this Event

PARADISE ‘89/Paradīze ‘89

NY Premiere

90 minutes. In Latvian with English subtitles

It is the summer of 1989 in Latvia, and politics are turbulent. Nine-year old Paula and her sister Laura leave their city life for the summer to spend their summer holidays with their cousins Maija and Linda, in a small town in the country. Left without strict adult supervision as the endless sunny summer stretches before them, the four girls enjoy their unexpected freedom, and imitate leading the lives of adults: sipping coffee over conversations about life in cafes, plunging into reckless adventures, and getting into trouble. Based on true events, Paradise 89 explores a story of growing up against the background of the Baltic Way, a time when Latvia took its first steps towards independence. Directed by Madara Dišlere (Latvia, 2018)
