The Wanderers (Klejotāji), dir. Matīss Kaža, 90′, Latvia/USA/Sweden, 2020
Through the prism of three distinct characters, the 24-year-old director conveys an intimate and sensitive portrait of his own generation, wanderers looking for their place in the new and uncertain world. Dancer Tanya moves to Mississippi where she finds love with a paraplegic wheelchair basketball trainer who is more than 20 years her senior. App developer Tomass abandons the life he had before and becomes a world-travelling digital nomad. Avant-garde publisher Valters collects toilets seats in a poetically performative attempt to overcome past trauma.
