Cats in Riga

Running time: 17’
Production: LVA 2014
The view of the Latvian capital through cats’ eyes and ears. While the news media sift through current affairs and the inhabitants of Riga focus on their daily cares, cats are completely occupied by their aimless wanderings through stairways, offices, and apartments, sublimely indifferent to the preposterous hustle and bustle of our civilization. There are hordes of silent witnesses all over the place, looking like they’re keeping a sharp eye on what’s going on around them. This ode to cathood plays with the notion of subjectivity in the perception of the world around us.
