Film Trophies. 40s-50s
The exhibition "Film Trophies" tells the story of the period’s film repertoire, cinemas of Riga, Latvia, and the filmgoers. It emphasizes cinema as the most accessible form of entertainment at the time, as well as the politics that informed its contents - not only "trophy films" but also Soviet productions.
Memory interprets details but preserves the significant, revealing the films, actors, cinemas and filmgoing rituals. The story of these memories is revealed in written text, video interviews, film excerpts, newsreels, photographs, posters, film advertisements, Communist Party meetings' transcripts and decrees, images of cinemas' interiors and exteriors, and other visual and graphic testimonies to the era.
