I am so honored to be part of this production! It has been a challenge to complete but its great that it can now be shown to the word.
I was engaged as Post Production Sound Designer for this short film.
A deeply moving story about the tragic impact of war on a young family, but ultimately, also a story of survival and resolution. Unaware of what is to come a 24-year-old Voldemārs joins the Latvian Army in 1940. With the world watching Hitler’s invasion of Paris, it fails to notice some thirty thousand Soviet troops marching into Latvia. Voldemārs meets Millija while on leave, they fall deeply in love and a year later and married.
Torn apart by war, both sides of this young family struggle to survive without the other. This heartbreaking separation will strike a universal chord with anyone who understands the deep resilience of family bonds.
Let me know your thoughts about the trailer.
