A tragicomic drama about Ansis, a young artist battered by conflicting allegiances as he witnesses the succession of brutal regimes assaulting the provincial backwater where he works and lives. As he goes from loving a fiery Jewish communist to finding himself betrothed to a Latvian Christian, the naïve yet wise Ansis exhibits the tenacity of the human spirit in the face of systematic, institutional inhumanity.

The film viewing will begin on the date listed. All films will be available for 48 hours.

12:00pm: LIVE Q&A with filmmaker Ilan Rubin Fields
