Šķērsiela (The Crossroad street)



Today I visited Šķērsiela. Šķērsiela (The Crossroad street) is just a small, typical Riga street in private housing suburb - it looks as provincial as such street can look. However, this street is famous. And it became famous when one of the leading Latvian film director Ivars Seleckis made a documentary film about this street in 1988 - the film was internationally recognized, awarded with "Felix" as European Documentary Film of the Year in European Film Awards 1990. "The Crossroad Street" even experienced it's sequel 10 years later - "New Times At Crossroad street". If you're interested to know more about these films and see a 3 minute fragment (with English subtitles) from the second film, visit these pages: http://www.latfilma.lv/d/069/index.html and http://www.latfilma.lv/d/130/index.html.
