24hr Sunshine (Saule spīd 24 stundas), dir. Juris Poškus, 117’, Latvia, 2023
Mārtiņš (39), a successful but stressed executive, starts feeling like a prisoner of his life and material wealth and suddenly leaves it all for good and joins a group of tourists heading to the North Pole. This seems like a symbolic solution that will let him start life anew, but the journey turns into a long and worrisome string of events. He accepts a challenge and joins a Guinness-record obsessed gang to reach the North Pole on foot.
