A multimedia story about freedom, where the main ‘storyteller’ is the Freedom Monument - Latvia’s symbol of freedom. We are used to seeing it before our eyes without giving a thought to the message sculpted into stone by Kārlis Zāle - from foundational values and ideals to freedom and excellence. At the base of the monument we see the Latvian Riflemen, the song festival, work, family, science; higher up we see mythical characters and the longings of the people - those who free us from our shackles, Lāčplēsis, Vaidelotis, and Latvia. The idea in each sculptural group - familiar to the Latvian people - will be complemented by specially developed video material and light installations.
