Synopsis

An early example of Riga-style film of the 1960s. Urban life in Riga as seen through the eyes of a little girl (Ilze Zariņa) who is looking for white bell flowers. This short drama, which draws on the city symphony genre, presents a picture of city life from the early morning hours to the peak of the day. Devoid of dialogue, the film captures the stark visual poetry of urban surfaces, where the industrial and the natural collide – all captured by wonderful cinematographer-turned-director Uldis Brauns, with a script from Herz Frank.
