Grammar, Girls and All That Jazz Un džess

Documentary, 52′, Latvia, 2010

This is a film about the generation of the 1970s, about its teenage dreams, hopes, choices and its adulthood reality. When the director of the film was in year 7 at school, he got a 8 mm film camera from his dad. The first thing he did was film his classmates and record their visions of future. Thirty years have passed. The future is here. Have they succeeded in fulfilling their dreams?

Kad es mācījos 6. klasē, tēvs man atdeva savu kinokameru. Pirmais, ko es uzfilmēju, bija mani klasesbiedri. Tagad, pēc gandrīz 30 gadiem, es filmēju viņus vēlreiz. Vai dzīve turpinās arī tad, kad sapnis par dzīvi jau izsapņots?
