The Latvian Embassy will present the film ''The Wounded Rider'' at Husets Biograf on January 26th. The film will be screened with English subtitles.

Join us to celebrate the centenary of Latvia with the 130th anniversary of the sculptor Kārlis Zāle, who immortalized his vision for the state of Latvia in two monumental symbols of the national awareness of the Latvian people – the Freedom Monument and the Brethren Cemetery. Zāle saw life in large, powerful lines, and he perceived sculpture likewise. This documentary, with elements of live acting, follows the sculptor’s life at the time when the Latvian state was born. It presents the process of the construction of the Freedom Monument, providing an insight into the political and social landscape of the time and introducing viewers to the ideals of the epoch and outstanding personalities in culture and art.
