Ruch & Norie Film Screening
Sat, 3 December 2016, 3:45 PM – 5:45 PM EST
The Embassy of the Republic of Latvia and the Embassy of Japan are pleased to present "Ruch and Norie". This documentary is a human interest story about two contrasting people striking up a surprising, emotional and spiritual relationship.
Japanese student Norie travels to Latvia to study the Suiti community, where she meets Ruch, one of the oldest Suiti women. That changes Norie’s life forever and the close bond between them doesn't break even after her return to Japan. Norie thinks she has found her deceased grandma in Ruch. Meanwhile, Ruch worries about Norie and trembles at the news of every earthquake in Japan. The documentary "Ruch and Norie" shows us all that there are no borders to a genuine human relationship filled with laughter, caring and love.
Doors will open at 3:45pm. Light refreshments from Latvia and Japan will be served. The film screening will start at 4:30pm. One ticket per order only. If you require multiple tickets, please make separate orders, providing names of each attendee.
