My Neighbour is a Bear

Stig Bilde, Jeanette Schou, Denmark, 1991

28 min.DK/Documentary

After Glasnost, Riga has again become visible on the map of Europe. The city opens with its history, its ancient streets and the Daugava River. Interviews and pictures tell of Latvia's history and about daily life under a system where the problems often border on the absurd. The struggle for independence of Latvia takes a lot of courage.
