The TV series Soviet Jeans has been selected as one of the 12 participants in the International Panorama section of the largest European series festival. International TV Series Festival Series Mania will take place from March 15 to 22, 2024, in Lille, Hauts-de-France and online.

The entry of the series Soviet Jeans into the International Panorama section of the Series Mania festival is an important achievement of the Latvian series in the international arena. Series Mania festival is the biggest event of TV series in Europe. It offers exclusive world premieres to an audience of up to 85,500 viewers.

We all really liked it and we were unanimous about the decision. It's interesting and incredibly charming at the same time, and it really has some heart. Also, the cast is really great, there's great chemistry between them, and it's well directed. We can safely say that we really fell in love with this series," said representatives of the festival.

Soviet Jeans is a tragicomic story about free thinkers and conformists, about relationships and choices, about borders and the opening of the world. And about the pants that changed the world! At the end of the seventies - at a time when the fiercest propaganda against western culture was spread throughout the USSR - an ardent rock music fan has created a successful and illegal underground jeans factory in a psychiatric hospital in Latvia.
