The programme of RIGA IFF will comprise feature films, documentaries and short films from all over the world in more than 100 screenings. The following three films have just been added to the section FESTIVAL SELECTION!
Sorry, We Missed You (2019) by the British social drama master Ken Loach, nominated for Palme d’Or at the Cannes Film Festival, will touch a cord with those shaken by the dark side of globalization.
The self-ironic Non-Fiction (Doubles vies, 2018) by the French director and screenwriter Olivier Assayas, one of the contenders for the Golden Lion of the Venice Film Festival, will make you smile about the twists and turns of careers and love lives of contemporary high society as well as problems and hopes brought by global digitalization.
Probably, the most unexpected surprise will be the partially autobiographical tragicomedy Synonyms (Synonymes, 2019) by the Israeli director Nadav Lapid, telling a story about the ability and disability to break free from one’s national identity. The film received the Golden Bear of the Berlin Film Festival and the prize of the International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI).
