The First Bridge

  • Latvia

The First Bridge is a film about frontiers, barriers, the ways to cross over and see what goes on, on the other side. But it also a film about time, as it was shot on Kodak Negative Films acquired in the year 1997 and discovered intact in 2018. A new example of the deliciously unique creativity of Laila Pakalniņa.
